A Call To Action on Climate Change and Public Health
The November issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine provides a crucial state-of-the art overview of many of the issues at the intersection of climate change and health. Guest Editors — Howard Frumkin, MD, DrPH, and Jeremy J. Hess, MD, MPH, National Center for Environmental Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta; and Anthony J. McMichael, PhD, National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, Australian National University, Canberra — and their colleagues issue a call to action. In recognition of the importance of this topic, award-winning health reporter Kenny Goldberg (with the National Public Radio station KPBS, 89.5 FM in San Diego) has interviewed five of the contributing authors. These interviews are available as freely downloadable podcasts at: http://www.ajpm-online.net/content/podcast.
