About The Event
This online webinar directed toward physicians and medical students will focus on climate change as both a rural and urban health threat and opportunity, and how health professionals can use lessons learned from this pandemic to address both climate change and racial and class-based injustice, thereby building a healthier future for all. The talk will highlight a number of promising efforts underway among health professionals in Wisconsin.
The presenter, Joel Charles, MD, is a rural full-spectrum family doc who got his MPH focusing on climate change and health. He has spent the last 10 years in his (limited) free time organizing health professionals to advocate for climate policy.
