What you will learn:

Last year in 2021, more than 200 medical journals issued a joint statement declaring that the rapidly warming climate is the "greatest threat" to global public health, making it a rising topic of importance for the healthcare industry. Climate change is the defining issue of the twenty-first century, and is defining environmental justice, human rights and public health. The most vulnerable populations in the United States and around the world will suffer the earliest and most damaging setbacks because of where they live, their limited income and economic means, and their lack of access to health care. Professor Bullard’s keynote address will focus on the need for empowering vulnerable populations, identifying environmental justice and climate change “hot-spot” zones, and a framework for dismantling systemic racism and policies and practices that create, exacerbate and perpetuate inequality and vulnerability.
