Planning for Resilient Communities and Adapting Health Services in response to climate change and ecosystem disruptions
Evidence from current climate science research suggests that anthropogenic activity will cause drastic changes to our environment, including global warming of over 1.5 degrees Celsius in the next 10-30 years, extreme weather patterns and rising sea levels – some of these changes have already been observed in British Columbia. These environmental impacts have consequences for human health, with natural hazards disproportionately impacting rural populations.
Save the date for RHSRNbc's 2020 Virtual Symposium: Planning for Resilient Communities and Adapting Health Services in response to climate change and ecosystem disruption, taking place on Zoom from November 30 – December 1, 2020.
The Rural Health Services Research Network of BC (RHSRNbc) is funded by the Rural Coordination Centre of BC and is located within the Department of Family Practice at UBC.
The primary goals of RHSRNbc is to support capacity building in rural health services research through providing funding opportunities, online resources, and fostering partnerships among health authorities, students, various rural health professionals, and universities to better support rural health services research.
