Five on Friday: The Impact of Separation and Detention on Children


This summer has pushed the mercury up to never-before-seen heat in locations across the Northern Hemisphere. This weekend’s record-breaking heat in Europe threatens the health of thousands of people like agricultural workers who cannot avoid the heat. In the Arctic, the immense heat is melting ice fast, and is set to melt at an even faster rate as the “heat dome” settles over the north.  This is a great time to review our newly archived webinar for Community Health Workers, available in English (“It’s Hot and It’s Dangerous!”) and Spanish (“¡Hace mucho calor y es peligroso!”). Here are five additional reads from MCN staff that might interest you as you move into your weekend. Stay safe and cool!
