Posted on the Podcast Blog: My Comments in Response to HHS's Environmental Justice Strategy RFI (May 20th)
Since listeners have encouraged me to post some of my non-published writings, please click on the "Blog" link just below the title banner, scroll down and you will see my comment letter in response to HHS's Request for Information (RFI) titled, "2022 HHS Environmental Justice Strategy and Implementation Plan Draft Outline." At: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2022-04-08/pdf/2022-07514.pdf
Listeners will not be surprised my comments focus on the climate crisis, i.e., they reflect, in part, previous comments in my related March 28th STAT News article, again at: https://www.statnews.com/2022/03/28/hhss-failure-to-address-the-health-harms-of-climate-crisis-constitutes-environmental-and-institutional-racism/. The comment letter, at 3,000 words, will also provide status of the National Academy of Medicine's healthcare industry decarbonization effort along with Congressional and White House efforts.
Listeners are encouraged to submit comments in response to the RFI. Comments were initially due May 19th, however, HHS extended the deadline to June 18th. See the link to the RFI above for the HHS email address.
