NACCHO Demonstration Site: Health Effects of Global Climate Change in Central Florida Videos

Description:

This three-part video series was created by the Orange County (FL) Health Department as an educational tool to teach health department staff, external partners, and the general public about the health effects of climate change in Central Florida. 

The first video focuses on how climate change is affecting the quality of the very air we breathe, the water we depend on, and how it's increasing the dangers of asthma, respiratory disorders, water-borne and heat related illnesses. The second video in this series focuses on how climate change is affecting our health by an increase in air, water, food, and insect borne diseases. The third and final video in this series discusses how climate change may increase the stress and mental health issues of local communities through disease, death, and displacement.
