The Office of Climate Change and Health Equity (OCCHE) and the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR) launched the Climate and Health Outlook Portal to help prepare localities for climate-related hazard events.
OCCHE seeks feedback on the portal, which features interactive maps showing county-level extreme heat, wildfire, and drought forecasts for the current month, as well as county-level data on individual risk factors that may make more people vulnerable to negative health outcomes from these hazards.
Further, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has requested comments, evidence, and data to inform a technical brief on Healthcare Industry Waste and Lifecycle Assessment. Comments are due Oct. 30.
