Get Involved



Human Health + Climate Change is an interdisciplinary student organization at UCSF made up of medical, pharmacy, nursing and dentistry students focused on creating awareness and enacting change around climate-health issues. The group is connected on the belief that climate change and its consequences will increasingly dominate the landscape of public and global health challenges moving forward, and health care providers are responsible to address the burdens it places on human health and well-being.
