Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
Dr. Victor Dzau, President of the National Academy of Medicine (NAM), elevated the issue of the impact of climate change on individual and population health as a central component of his annual address to the NAM membership in October 2020.45 His citation, attributed to President Lincoln whose action established the National Academy of Science as an unbiased source of analysis and expertise for issues confronting the American people, is pertinent: “You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” In his address, President Dzau outlined new action as a top priority for NAM in partnership with the national academies of science and engineering. Jointly with the Burroughs Welcome Fund, nine opportunity grants were awarded to support interdisciplinary teams across the National Academies to stimulate new projects. A signature initiative has been announced for NAM identified as the Grand Challenge on Human Health and Climate Change, a five-year, multi-million dollar strategic initiative that aims to: • Develop a comprehensive and long-term road-map for transforming systems (e.g., health care, transportation, energy) impacted by climate change with a focus on human health. • Mobilize the full spectrum of actors and institu-tions in the health community and other sectors to reduce the health sector’s environmental impact. • Launch a global competition to foster innovative interdisciplinary research and actionable solu-tions at the intersection of climate change and health.
