Center for Climate & Health
ANTHC’s Center for Climate and Health assists communities and helps them to better understand the impacts of climate change and how to adapt in healthy ways. The program provides assessments, technical assistance, training through 7 Generations and assistance monitoring environmental impacts. In addition, the program coordinates the interagency One Health Group, which provides surveillance on emerging environmental, wildlife and public health threats.
One Health Group
The One Health Group was formed in 2013, and is hosted by ANTHC and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Arctic Investigations Program. The group includes professionals from Canada, Alaska and other parts of the United States and it is open to professionals in the fields of wildlife and environmental management and public health among others. The One Health Group meets quarterly to share information on activities, discuss emerging One Health issues, consider events that are indicative of environmental and climate change and to provide a forum for identifying areas of common interest and collaboration.
