SGIM Forum Call for Submissions:
Theme Issue on Climate Change & Health - March 2021
Submission deadline: January 15, 2021
SGIM Forum will publish a theme issue on climate change and its consequences on the health of our patients and populations for its March 2021 issue. Human-driven changes in climate and the environment have resulted in increasingly frequent extreme weather events globally. Examples include increasing average temperatures, rising sea levels, wildfires, or tainted air and water. Such phenomena have displaced communities, changed disease patterns, compromised food systems, disrupted economies and health care delivery, and exacerbated health disparities — disproportionately impacting vulnerable and marginalized populations. Environmental health and science are inextricably linked to our patients’ health.
