10 Dec [CNA Webinar] Environmental Health in Times of COVID-19

You are invited to the CNA Webinar Series – Environmental Health in Times of COVID-19, on Tuesday, December 15th, 2020 at 12PM EST. This webinar is presented by Andrea Chircop, PhD, RN, Assistant Professor, School of Nursing, Dalhousie University.

Description

When people are overwhelmed by uncertainty, as during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is hard to imagine that other complex issues, such as climate change, will garner attention. Yet, COVID-19’s first and second waves and environmental health are linked by magnifying health inequities. People identifying with Black and Indigenous communities, people who live on low-income and with precarious jobs are among those hit the hardest from COVID-19- related implications. Environmental health inequities are the result of similar social and structural conditions. Nursing leadership for environmental health has never been more urgent toward achieving intergenerational justice for future generations. What could we possibly do?

In this webinar I will illustrate:
• A shared journey of our environment
• A future scenario and how it might affect your practice
• What we might learn from Indigenous stories
