Did you know that climate change is the most urgent challenge facing our food system and public health? Join Food Sleuth Radio host and Registered Dietitian, Melinda Hemmelgarn, for her interview with Surili Sutaria Patel, M.S., Deputy Director of the Center for Health Policy at the American Public Health Association (APHA). Patel explains that we are the first generation to feel the impacts of climate change but likely the last generation to do something about it. Join us as we discuss the food, nutrition, and health challenges related to climate change, with messages of hope and action.
2017 is the “Year of Climate Change and Health,” a 12-month APHA-led initiative with monthly themes meant to raise awareness of and mobilize action on the health impacts of climate change.
