Climate Action for Environmental Justice and Pandemic Prevention

The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically illustrated the relationship between environmental factors and health status. Residents of communities like Chelsea, Revere and Lynn who are disproportionately exposed to more pollution and toxins while living in overcrowded and substandard housing were up to five times more likely to be infected, hospitalized or die from the coronavirus. Dr. Aaron Bernstein, MD, MPH, Interim Director of C-CHANGE (The Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment) at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Pediatric Hospitalist at Boston Children’s Hospital, joins the Green Team and the Racial Justice Initiative for an enlightening discussion of environmental determinants of health-related illnesses and conditions.

Sponsored by the Green Team and Racial Justice Initiative.
