Please join us at Kaiser Permanente's Health Action Summit for a special Climate and Health session beginning at 3:45 PM ET on Thursday, April 11.
Putting Health at the Heart of Climate Action: POLITICO Executive Conversation with Bechara Choucair, MD, SVP and Chief Health Officer, Kaiser Permanente
First, please join us for a conversation on the outlook of human health in face of one of the greatest challenges of our time — climate change. The discussion with Dr. Choucair will be led by Alexander Gaffney, MS, RAC, Regulatory Policy and Intelligence Leader, Agency IQ, a research division of POLITICO.
Immediately following, stay tuned for Global Impact: Climate Change and Our Health, presented by POLITICO. This session will examine links between catastrophic weather events and health challenges, and how industry and government can better collaborate to tackle disparities at the intersection of climate change and health care.
Are increased extreme weather events leading to a rise in health issues? Should those issues be looked at holistically or separately? We'll answer these questions and more.
Featured Speakers:
John M. Balbus, MD, MPH, Director, Office of Climate Change and Health Equity, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Victor J. Dzau, MD, President, National Academy of Medicine
Sarah E. Hunt, President, The Joseph Rainey Center for Public Policy
Carmen Paun, Global Health, Reporter, POLITICO
Matthew Tejada, PhD, Senior Vice President, Environmental Health, National Resources Defense Counsel
