Your supervisor has asked you to prepare a grant proposal to secure funding for future climate change-related emerging environmental health issues in your community. The first step is to persuade the Board of Directors that funding is needed and your time will be well spent on writing the grant.
Review the Executive Summary of The Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment. (dx.doi.org/10.7930/J0R49NQX)
Write a 500-word persuasive essay on “Mental Health and Well-Being” that includes:
- A detailed discussion of the emerging environmental health issue created by climate change.
- How federal, state and local government and non-government organizations can effectively address the issue.
- The measures that need to be taken to prevent harm from these environmental hazards in the future.
Be sure that you are informing and then persuading the Board of Directors that this is an important issue and it is best to secure funding now, before a health hazard arises and there is an immediate need for funds.
Include at least three (3) U.S. references within the last 5-7 years.
