“As health professionals, we have the platform to enact change within our own institutions, as well as local and federal governments. We must elect leaders and officials who spearhead climate action. We must reduce the carbon footprint of healthcare. And we must educate our colleagues and our patients about the impact of climate change on health.
We need every single one of us to take action. Our patients’ health depends on it.”
Sarah Hsu is a medical student. She shares her story and discusses the KevinMD article, “5 things medical professionals can do to take climate action.”
