Show Notes

Join us for Part 2 of our discussion on Climate Change! Climate change is shifting how we live across the globe, impacting some communities far more than others, and forcing us to continue working to mitigate the damage and adapt to a new and changing environment. Nowhere is this need more important than in healthcare. Listen in on the rest of our conversation with Dr. Robert McLean (rheumatologist, advocate for climate justice, former ACP President) and Dr. Erika Moseson  (pulmonary and critical care physician, founder of Air Health Our Health) about the impact of climate on health and the ways we can work toward climate justice.
