Climate Change Impacts on Health and Wellness

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

A study mandated by congress, National Climate Assessment and Development Climate Assessment, highlights the impact on health and wellness.

1. Climate change threatens human health and well-being in many ways, including impacts from increased extreme weather events, wildfire, decreased air quality, diseases transmitted by insects, food and water, and threats to mental health. Some of these health impacts are already underway in the U.S.
2. Climate change will, absent other changes, amplify some of the existing health threats the nation now faces. Certain people and communities are especially vulnerable, including children, the elderly, the sick, the poor, and some communities of color.
3. Public health actions, especially preparedness and prevention, can do much to protect people from some of the impacts of climate change. Early action provides the largest health benefits. As threats increase, our ability to adapt to future changes may be limited.
4. Responding to climate change provides opportunities to improve human health and well-being across many sectors, including energy, agriculture, and transportation.

Lycuem Wellness Center to host 2nd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting

For immediate release
Contact: Dave Schiman – 267.417.0147

The area’s newest group of business professionals invites neighbors, customers and friends to its second annual Christmas party and tree lighting.

The Dec. 4 party, sponsored by the
Roxborough Business Exchange,
will be held at the Lyceum Wellness Center, 445 Lyceum Ave. Festivities begin with neighborhood caroling at 6 p.m., followed an hour later by the lighting of the center’s enormous Christmas tree. Food, drink and music will follow.

And, of course, Santa is expected to pay a visit during the party.

Admission to the event is one non-perishable food item to benefit
the North Light Community Center.

Chiropractor Bill Pezzello and acupuncturist David Schiman founded the Roxborough Business Exchange in 2008 to champion the community by promoting its businesses. The group has grown to dozens of members working in fields ranging from pet sitting to banking.

Group members provide a network of support and referrals to each other in growing and marketing their businesses, while promoting the Roxborough, Manayunk, Andorra and East Falls commmunities. A large part of the group’s activities focus on organizing and sponsoring
local service events, such as its successful Spring Cleanup.
