This week on "Podnosis," you'll hear from Gary Cohen, the president and co-founder of Health Care Without Harm, an environmental advocacy group. He talked with Fierce's Anastassia Gliadkovskaya about the way healthcare is addressing its role in climate change and how this became a mature movement.
Also under discussion is environmental justice. Gliadkovskaya also talks with Aparna Bole, who is a senior consultant at the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity. They talk about why healthcare organizations must go beyond addressing their direct emissions to truly improve health equity, and the requirements and incentives that can help get everyone there.
