WI Climate and Health Program

The Climate and Health Program studies how climate change impacts people's health in Wisconsin and develops ways to reduce those health impacts. We use that research to create strategies, tools, and trainings to help communities adapt to climate change and protect the health of all Wisconsinites.

Topics include heat waves; severe storms; winter weather; drought; floods; and infectious diseases.

Climate change reports are available from 2020, 2021, and 2022.

The webpage includes toolkits for health professionals that are available for health professionals and address heat, storms, winter weather, wildfires, drought, flood, infectious disease, and community engagement.
