Heat Stress Series - Rural Heat Challenges and Interventions
March 4, 2021
This is the second session of the virtual National Adaptation Forum Heat Stress Series, brought to you by EcoAdapt. 
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 Healthís analysis of heat-related illness in rural communities, and rural-focused heat stress interventions carried out by Sustainable Sandhills in North Carolina, health threats faced by farm workers, and Public Citizenís potential Federal policy solutions to protect workers from heat.
