Seventy health professionals from a wide variety of fields joined us for our first annual Climate & Health conference on February 18, 2023! We had a wonderful day, with fantastic speakers, rich discussion, and many new friends. Thank you to everyone who attended (and braved the cold weather)!

The day before, we stopped by the Rotunda of the Capitol building for a day of educating legislators about our climate concerns. Thank you to everyone who showed up and engaged with our representatives! We must speak up for the health of every Montanan during the climate crisis, and our representatives have a duty to listen.
