Unlocking a Healthier Future: the Nursing and Healthy Environments Exchange!

We are excited to introduce the Nursing and Healthy Environments Exchange, which began on September 15th and continues until October 27th. Hosted virtually by ANHE Latinoamerica, this seminar promises to delve into a wide range of crucial topics. These include climate health risks, the pressing climate crisis, the intersection of finance and health, the significance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the pivotal role of nursing in fostering healthier communities at the grassroots level. Moreover, it will explore nursing’s contribution to addressing global health challenges, among other compelling subjects.

The virtual seminar boasts 150 participants, representing various universities and health institutes across Latin American countries such as Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Costa Rica, Chile, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic, among others. Likewise, the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing (UPPEN) of the United States is collaborating in this global gathering. The primary objective of this event is to collaboratively generate digital educational materials on nursing interventions aimed at promoting healthier environments.

Distinguished speakers from different and diverse academic backgrounds such as Nadia Itzel Castillo Pérez, a climatologist specializing in public communication of science with a focus on climate change; Professor Emma Pasacale from UPENN and Chief Sustainability Officer Clinical Fellow at NHS England; Professor of Gerontological Nursing Sarah Kagan, also from UPENN; Yasna Palmeiro, a specialist in Public Health and a 4th-year Ph.D. student at University College London; and Mauricio Alfonso Ilabaca Marileo, Coordinating President of the Southern Medical Commission and President of the Department of the Environment at the Medical College of Chile,  among other notable experts, are gracing the event with their valuable insights and expertise.
