Climate Change & Health
What is this service?
OutsideIn SLO is a partnership between San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department and the California Department of Public Health to discuss and manage the health impacts of climate change in our county.
Climate change threatens our health now and will impact our way of life in the future. We can see some of these changes today in the United States and right here in SLO County, including increased temperature, extreme storms, wildfire, rising sea level, decreased air quality, and drought.
Climate change affects everyone. People at greater risk include children, seniors, people with chronic diseases, outdoor workers, people living in poverty, and some communities of color. For more information and to get involved, visit www.healslo.com/outsidein-slo.
