NH-HWCA is a nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy group of healthcare workers who seek to use the trusted messenger voice of healthcare workers to engage fellow healthcare workers, policy makers and the public in talking about the impacts of climate change on health. We incorporated in late 2021.

The work of the organization is conducted through 5 volunteer working groups, including: Communications & Education, Behavioral Health, Children’s Health-CHICKs, Climate Justice and Policy & Advocacy. The work of these working groups is coordinated by our one full-time employee, Emily Thompson, Director of Operations
