Public Health and Climate Change: Insights from the Keynote, Surili Sutaria Patel
Climate change-it's not just sea level rise and hurricanes
Live from the Social Coast Forum, Peter and Tyler sit down with the keynote speaker from the opening plenary, Surili Sutaria Patel, Director of the Center for Climate, Health & Equity at the American Public Health Association. From her unique vantage point, Patel documents how climate change is impacting public health today and that the coming changes will likely affect us all, regardless of race, income, age, or geography. Some communities are more prepared; others will face the challenge of climate change less empowered and less equipped. How do we get ready? How do we level the playing field so communities have the chance to adjust, become climate resilient, and remain healthy? Jump into this eye-opening discussion with the leading expert on the topic in America. There is a lot to think about. Another great show from ASPN!
