Mason4C Partnering Medical Societies & Environmental Justice Groups To Address Climate & Health Injustices In Southeastern United States

The Center for Climate Change Communication (Mason4C) received two funding awards from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to support partnering medical societies and environmental justice groups to address climate and health injustices in the southeastern United States.

The Medical Society Consortium on Climate & Health, a program of Mason 4C, is a partnership of medical societies, including the National Medical Association (NMA), affiliated state-level clinician groups, and public health organizations. With RWJF support, Mason4C has been able to continue to organize, empower, and amplify the voices of doctors and other health professionals. This funding will expand this partnership to build the visibility and effectiveness of community-based environmental justice (EJ) groups in collaboration with NMA fellows.

Mason4C received funding awards in the amounts of $87,485 and $162,515. These awards began in May 2021 and will end in May 2022.
