Climate change exacerbates and creates new risks for human health through threats such as extreme heat and vector-borne diseases. Victor Dzau (President of the National Academy of Medicine) will moderate a conversation with Gary Cohen (Health Care Without Harm) and Jodi Sherman (Yale University) about the challenges of decarbonizing the health sector, how those efforts fit into broader efforts to address climate change, and lessons that can be shared with other sectors.

The conversation will be webcast on the Climate Conversations: Decarbonizing the Health Sector webpage on Thursday, November 18, 2021 from 3-4pm ET. Closed captioning will be provided. The conversation will include questions from the audience, and will be recorded and available to view on the page after the event.
