C2 H2 concept

Thank you for reviewing the draft report "Climate Change and Human Health in Montana"

“Climate Change and Human Health in Montana" (aka C2H2) is a special report of the Montana Climate Assessment. C2H2 focuses on how climate change affects human health and recommends actions for how communities, medical professionals, and policy-makers can respond and adapt to health-related climate threats in Montana. The goal of the report is to present Montana-specific, public information that is evaluated and synthesized from credible scientific and medical sources.

As of July 1, 2020, the public comment period for the C2H2 report is closed. The three organizing groups that produced the report -- the Center for American Indian and Rural Health Equity (CAIRHE), the Montana Institute on Ecosystems (IoE), and Montana Health Professionals for a Healthy Climate (HPHC) -- would like to thank everyone who took the time to read, consider, and comment on the draft C2H2 report. Your input mattered and was reviewed and discussed by the writing team and resulted in a number of small but important changes to the final report.

We expect the C2H2 report to be released in January of 2021, both in print and online (see www.montanaclimate.org). At that point, the writing team will be looking for locations, conferences, NGOs, service organizations, and other opportunities across Montana to highlight the report's important messages. Please contact Madison Boone, IoE Program and Communications Manager at madison.boone@montana.edu, at any time if you have any ideas where we might give a presentation, send hard copies, be interviewed for an article, or otherwise somehow highlight the report, as well as if you have any general questions about the report.
