Background: 

•From drug development to disposal, pharmaceuticals impact the environment
•Climate-induced illnesses are projected to increase pharmaceutical demand
•Pharmacists can reduce the effects of pharmaceuticals on the environment and manage climate-related disease
•Pharmacy curricula addressing these issues are lacking within the United States
 
Purpose: 
•To implement a brief pharmacy curriculum incorporating themes of sustainability, climate change, and pharmaceuticals
•To develop awareness of climate-related illness and sustainable healthcare practices
 
Design: 
•During Fall 2016, 115 UCSF pharmacy students participated during their required 3rd year Health Policy course
•A 3-hour curriculum included pre-course activities, a lecture, a panel of experts, and small-group problem solving (Figure 1 & 2)
•Pre-/Post-test measures of knowledge acquisition, student feedback, and capstone policy proposal projects were recorded (Figure 3, Table 1 & 2)
