Climate Action Briefing for Maine Physicians

Dear Maine Physicians,

You are likely well-aware of at least some of the health implications of the deepening Climate Crisis. Thankfully we are now coming close to the opportunity to begin making things better, but effective national action is not a given. 

Maine's Congressional delegation needs the support of community leaders for effective climate action- this means you. Your voice is important. 

On Friday, December 11th at 8AM our Health Action Team of Maine's Citizen Climate Lobby will be giving a briefing specifically for Maine Physicians. The briefing is free and will be held by Zoom. We'll be demonstrating the effectiveness of measures for addressing the Climate Crisis (using the En-ROADS model) and sharing the most recent data on health impact of effective action (including health care costs averted and lives saved). Physicians will have the opportunity to communicate their concern and recommendations to Maine's Congressional delegation. 

In this time of multiple crises, please consider participating and helping to lead the way forward. 

Thank you,

 Edward Pontius MD, DLFAPA
