In episode 70 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons celebrates two years of America Adapts by talking with Dr. Natasha DeJarnett, a policy analyst in the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) Center for Public Health Policy.  Natasha leads the Natural Environment portfolio focusing on water, air and climate change.  Doug and Natasha cover such topics as the role of APHA in addressing climate impacts on public health; environmental justice and equity; the roles of nurses, doctors and clinics in climate building awareness, and much more!

Topics covered:

  • What is APHA’s role and responsibilities in climate change;
  • APHA has identified “Climate change as the greatest public health threat”;
  • Elevating the urgency around climate change through its public health impacts, e.g., less from the Ebola outbreak;
  • Environmental justice and equity and public health;
  • Learning from the Tobacco wars and applying to climate change awareness;
  • Health providers are first line of climate communication with the public;
  • What the Centers for Disease Control is and isn’t doing on climate change;
