World Environment Day: How pollution and climate change impact health disparities.

June 5th is World Environment Day, an initiative of the United Nations, and part of the framework that ended the ozone layer crisis. But now there are new environmental crises looming large and threatening our most vulnerable populations. Dr Cheryl Holder explains why we need to be concerned about environmental determinants of health, and discusses how the health impact of climate change and pollution further highlights health inequities. Dr. Holder calls for all healthcare providers to share her concerns and find ways to help protect our communities. The National Medical Association joined Movement is Life in presenting this episode, which is hosted by Climate Action campaigner Elise Tolbert.
