The Health Professional Student Perspective: Advancing Climate Change Solutions

November 1, 2021

Students representing several health professional programs gathered to discuss their reactions to the recent Swain Climate Policy Series: Advancing Climate Solutions with Al Gore.

As future health leaders, these students addressed their role in climate sustainability and how environmental health plays a role in both human and animal health. They each shared their unique perspectives and concerns for their patients, and collaborated on how University of Minnesota health science students can lead climate change solutions.

The discussion was led by OACA interns Bethany O'Bryan and Sara Dasler.
