From significant wildfires, to deadly heat, to substantial flooding, the U.S., Europe, and in other places have experienced extraordinary temperature this summer, costing lives and exacerbating health problems and disparities. In this stay-streamed Q&A, Renee Salas, unexpected emergency drugs health practitioner and Yerby Fellow at the Center for Weather, Health, and the International Setting (C-Modify) at the Harvard T.H. Chan College of Community Health, described how severe climate impacts wellbeing and why some teams are particularly at possibility. Dr. Salas joined The World’s Carolyn Beeler to check out the deepening disaster at the intersection of climate modify and well being.
