Climate change is one of the greatest public health challenges of the 21st century.
We are already experiencing the impacts of climate change in Washington County. The health impacts of climate change will affect us all and will have greater impact on disadvantaged communities.

The role of the Climate and Health team at Washington County is to help our communities become more resilient to climate change, better protecting our health.
