Environment Health

Why We Care

In a world increasingly affected by climate change, global health is being challenged by a greater frequency of extreme weather events, changing access to food and clean water and influencing the spread and nature of disease. As future medical professionals, we can act to raise awareness and education about the health effects of climate change, and act as advocates for environmentally sustainable practices and legislation.

What’s We’re Doing
This year in addition to keeping you informed and raising awareness about local and global environmental issues, HHRG is running a KeepCup campaign within the hospital, hosting a Ride to Uni day breakfast and working with Doctors for the Environment Australia and AMSA Code Green!
