February 09, 2017 7:55 AM | Anonymous

In January 2017, MPHA once again signed on to the Health Professionals for a Healthy Climate letter to Minnesota's Legislators. The letter draws attention to three issues:

  1. the importance of building on recent progress in reducing carbon emissions and pollution; 
  2. the dangers of natural gas as a bridging fuel while phasing out coal; and 
  3. the need to protect our most vulnerable communities from the impacts of our changing environment.

Health Professionals for a Healthy Climate would like to hear from MPHA members interested in learning more about their work on these issues.  They can be reached at
