Ohio Clinicians for Climate Action Advocacy Training

Ohio Clinicians for Climate Action (OCCA) invites Ohio AAP members to an advocacy training on September 20. OCCA is a clinician-led project of the Ohio Environmental Council, Ohio’s oldest, most-respected environmental organization.

OCCA offers doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals practical advocacy tools and trainings such as how to effectively speak to the media, deliver testimony, and sit down in one-on-one conversations with policy makers. The upcoming advocacy training will include expert overviews, hands-on workshops, a bi-partisan legislative panel, and news conference. There is an important overlap between the health of our environment and patients. Clinicians have such a critical role to play in voicing support for policies that make our communities safer, cleaner, and healthier.
