Preparing for the Public Health Impacts of Climate Change


Through support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), MICHAP is building a climate-resilient public health system for Michigan at the state, local health department, and community levels by:

  • Protecting vulnerable populations, and being mindful of environmental justice concerns
  • Integrating into traditional public health activities and roles
  • Embodying the ‘health in all policies’ concept
  • Encouraging communities to collaboratively grow in a healthy and sustainable way
