What can we do as increasingly hot summers affect the health of mid-Missourians? Rebecca Roesslet, Social Services Supervisor, Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Social Services; Allison Kellenberger, RN, and Dr. Dick Parker, Biologist, with David Lile, KFRU radio, moderator, will describe recent information from NOAA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, on what global warming is doing to Missouri weather and what steps can be and are being taken locally to deal with asthma, heat stress, etc. due to increasing summer heat and climate change. For time, venue and more information, see the calendar or the November 2012 Voter (Newsletter menu).
Mark your calendars — May 4 and 5, 2013 – and plan to come to Columbia for the 61st State Convention.
Convention is when we all participate in the planning of the League of Women Voters of Missouri for the next two years. Now is the time to start thinking about the positions on which you want the League to take action in the next two years. Be sure to take part in your local League’s program planning process in preparation for this.
In addition to the business of convention, there will be interesting speakers, our bi-annual League awards, delicious meals, and plenty of time to get to know Leaguers from across the state.
Your suggestions for making this a great convention are welcome!
