Georges Benjamin Interview – 10/5/2017

Did you know that 2017 has been designated “The year of climate change and health” by the American Public Health Association? Join Food Sleuth Radio host and Registered Dietitian, Melinda Hemmelgarn, for her interview with Georges Benjamin, M.D., Executive Director of the American Public Health Association, who describes the importance of community action, social determinants of public health, and health effects of climate change, including mosquito born diseases, and loss of cultural food and farming habits. Benjamin encourages us to look at climate change not through a political lens, but one of community response.  Climate change is “not just an inconvenience; it’s a societal issue.”
