As trusted messengers, physicians and nurses have an opportunity to influence public opinion about climate change, as well as climate policy at the local, state, and federal levels. This interactive workshop will provide clinicians with the skills and resources needed to influence policy makers, communicate effectively, and engage the media. Participants will learn from the advocacy experiences of the facilitators, as well as work in small groups to practice communication strategies and meeting with an elected representative. Participants will also learn essential skills for amplifying their trusted voice in the media. At the end of the workshop, physicians and nurses will be empowered and equipped to protect the health of their patients through effective climate action.
