As a ‘glass half full’ sort of person I think that’s why I got involved in public health nursing in the first place. If I didn’t think people could change, or that things would never get any better, then I would definitely be in the wrong career! I absolutely echo the thoughts of the Global Climate and Health Alliance that by working together, we can turn climate change into this century’s greatest opportunity for public health. They have produced some excellent resources which were released this week to help us understand climate change and its implications for our health. If we all start to work together, we could start to make a real difference.
