Profession Health Education Webinar – Climate change is a gendered issue (DEA)

17 June, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm AEST

DEA Webinar 17 June 2021


Throughout the world, women and children are highly vulnerable to the effects of a warming planet, and vulnerability increases with increasing levels of gender inequity. In all societies, improving women’s access to education, reproductive health care, financial resources and decision-making roles, is a vital part of climate mitigation and resilience.

For Australian women and the health professionals caring for them, there are specific considerations around exposure to heat and air pollution, especially in pregnancy, that will be covered in this presentation.

Please join Dr Kristine Barnden for this free one hour webinar and learn more about women’s health in a changing climate. This event is targeted at health professionals but all interested parties are welcome to attend.

Dr Kristine Barnden is a Hobart based obstetrician, climate activist, and member of Doctors for the Environment Australia. As an obstetrician, she is interested in the effects of environmental exposures on current and future generations. Dr Barnden believes the most effective thing she can do to help improve the health of women and children around the world is to get ordinary Australians talking about climate change

After her presentation Dr Barnden will be joined by Ana Navidad, midwife and climate activist, for further discussion and to answer questions from the audience.

This is an accredited activity with RACGP and ACRRM.
