About the Event

Samuel Myers, MD, MPH, will talk about the field and framework of planetary health, exploring how rapid degradation of Earth’s natural systems—including, but not limited to, the climate system—is impacting human health. He will then explore how we can think about solutions with a particular focus on the role of clinicians.

This webinar is co-hosted by the Center for the Environment and Health at Massachusetts General Hospital and the MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP) Center for Climate Change, Climate Justice, and Health.
