Millennium Fellowship Project: South Carolina Climate and Health Conferance
Through my internship with South Carolina Health Professionals, I helped organize a South Carolina Climate and Health Confreace . We partenered with The Palmetto Medical, Dental, and Pharmaceutical Association, Moorehouse School of Medicene, and Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health to put on a 4 hour conferance for CME (continueing education) credits. There were speakers who talked about the effects of climate change on South Carolina specifically for children, environmental justice, advocacy training, and impact on SC cities.
