After a year of more frequent climate-induced extreme weather, the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Americares with financial support from Biogen have joined forces to release a new Climate Resilience for Frontline Clinics Toolkit to help community health centers and free clinics better manage care and protect patients in 2023.
