In rural settings, interventions to extreme heat and heat stress must take into account the added challenges of greater travel distances and other limits to resource access. This session will highlight the North Carolina Division of Public Health's analysis of heat-related illness in rural communities, and rural-focused heat stress interventions carried out by Sustainable Sandhills in North Carolina. It will consider health threats faced by workers, and highlight Public Citizen’s potential Federal policy solutions to protect workers from heat.

 

Presenters:

Autumn Locklear, Climate Health Epidemiologist within the Occupational & Environmental Epidemiology Branch of the North Carolina Division of Public Health

Kia Jones, Air Quality Program Manager at Sustainable Sandhills, North Carolina

Juley Fulcher, J.D., Ph.D, Worker Health and Safety Advocate at Public Citizen, Washington D.C.
