In this 2-part episode we review the impacts that climate change has on pediatric health. We are joined by Dr. Sonja Swenson and Dr. Naomi Bardach; two amazing pediatricians, climate activists and co-chairs the climate change and child health committee for the American Academy of Pediatrics CA- Chapter 1. We spend part 1 discussing the known impacts that climate change is having on pediatric health. Ranging from severe weather events, to air pollution and changes in disease patterns. In part 2 we provide practical tips for what individuals can do personally to reduce their impact on climate change and highlight current advocacy work to help ensure a better future for our planet and our kids.

We thank Dr. Swenson and  Dr. Bardach for joining us for this episode, although Drs. Dean and Lena take full responsibility for any errors or misinformation.
