WGO Climate Change Webinar Series -- March 8th – June 28, 2023

Climate change is a rapidly developing public health crisis with significant implications for digestive health and disease. Physicians, nurses, and all health care providers involved in digestive care, need to understand the challenge we face.

In order to increase awareness and educate health providers, WGO is broadcasting a series of nine interactive Webinars for one hour each, occurring every two weeks from March until June.

They have assembled experts from around the world who are authorities on the subjects that will be presented. We hope that you and your members will find this series very helpful to your practice and to your understanding of the issues. On completion of this course attendees will have a clear understanding of the issues and will be prepared to take positive actions to help adapt to, and mitigate, climate change.  

Attendance is free of charge, and we will provide a certificate of completion for those who attend a majority of the sessions. Registration is encouraged as space may be limited.
