Monitoring Health Impacts from Extreme Heat Events

Project

Monitoring Health Impacts from Extreme Heat Events

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2017 - 2018

Extreme heat events can impact human health and lead to school and work absenteeism, productivity losses, and high health costs in local communities. We are sharing tools and lessons learned from our CEC 2015–2016 pilot project to expand capacity in communities and public health education organizations in North America to help healthcare professionals anticipate, assess, and prevent negative health outcomes from extreme heat events.
