DEALING WITH CLIMATE CHANGE ANXIETY
As part of the Lake Oswego Reads 2020 programming for the book Rising: Dispatches from the North American Shore, by Elizabeth Rush, the American Association of University Women Lake Oswego presents David Pollack, M.D , Emeritus Professor for Public Policy at OHSU.
Dr. David Pollack is a retired psychiatrist who now devotes all of his professional time to working on the mental health and public health impacts of the climate crisis. He will discuss the array of mental health issues associated with global warming, including not only the direct health effects of heat and air pollution but also the acute and persistent trauma and anxiety many people experience as they confront the reality and urgency of climate change’s threat to public health, economic sustainability and socio-cultural stability.
All are warmly welcome to this February 8, 2020 event. It is free, and no tickets are needed.
