Episode 26: Climate Week NYC 2021: Climate Change, Health & Equity

Studies show that climate change has become a global public health threat with a disproportionate impact on vulnerable populations. This event, hosted by Johnson & Johnson, will bring together cross-disciplinary leaders, who are on the frontlines of climate, health, and equity – from physicians who are working to better understand the connection between human health and environmental health to advocates who are supporting communities that are feeling the effects of a changing climate, to policy influencers who are working to address air pollution and other climate impacts. The event will highlight some of the collaborative and innovative actions happening today and share ideas on the immediate and longer-term climate and health interventions needed to help increase community resilience and reduce future impacts.
