Doctors for America attended the White House forum on climate change and its current and future impacts on health. The event underscored the launch of a new groundbreaking report, "Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment" that for the first time draws very specific connections between climate change and many many health impacts.
Human impact on the planet is making survival of the fittest hardest for the very old and very young, the sick, the poor. We now know climate change makes social determinants of health even worse for everyone but especially our most vulnerable patients. We believe doctors must act with urgency to get educated and speak up about the impact of climate on the health and lives of our patients.
