BRACE: Building Resilience Against Climate Effects
 
Over the past 60 years, Wisconsin has become warmer and wetter, especially during winter months. A warmer and wetter Wisconsin will affect our health.
 
In 2012, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), Bureau of Environmental and Occupational Health was awarded a Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) project grant. The Wisconsin BRACE program seeks to expand partnerships, provide expertise, foster collaboration, and develop strategies that will address health risk factors related to severe weather indicators.
