This presentation summarizes the latest research on climate-health pathways, focusing on the most significant climate impacts in the LA region, other environmental conditions, human behavior, and physical and mental health. The presenters propose a framework for assessing and addressing health vulnerability to climate change as part of a dynamic, complex system that includes urban forestry, water, and environmental justice considerations.
