NAM's Climate Crisis Effort Must Turn Words Into Action (October 15th)
Today, STAT News published my 8th climate crisis-related essay over the past few years. It's titled, "The National Academy of Medicine's Climate Crisis Effort Must Turn Words Into Action."
As I note, on September 28th, or after a year of preparation, the Dr. Victor Dzau, President of the National Academy, announced an action collaborative to decarbonize the health sector. Earlier or in late August DHHS announced the creation of the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity. The OCCHE is a co-sponsor of the Action Collaborative. Action collaborative information is at: https://nam.edu/programs/climate-change-and-human-health/.
Listeners may recall this past June 29th STAT published a related article I wrote with Walt Vernon. It's at: https://www.statnews.com/2021/06/29/public-reporting-health-care-greenhouse-gas-emissions/.
