Climate change and carbon pollution have always had an impact on public health, and the COVID-19 pandemic bears that out. On this month’s call, Dr. Natasha DeJarnett will look at how these two crises are connected. Dr. DeJarnett is the interim associate director of Program and Partnership Development at the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA), where she leads research as well as climate and health activities. She also serves on the governing board of Citizens’ Climate Education.
