Health Care Takes On Climate Change

Episode 30

Led by Bellagio fellow Josh Karliner, this #RFBreakthrough takes a look at the surging progress the health care community has made in climate leadership in the last few years. Josh wrote an article on the subject during his time at Bellagio and it was recently published by the Stanford Social Innovation Review. As moderator he’ll connect the dots between doctors, researchers, and activists and explain the lessons that we can all use from the rise in climate leadership from the health care community.

This event was broadcasted across The Rockefeller Foundation’s social media pages TwitterFacebookLinkedIn and YouTube on April 22nd at 10:00 AM ET.

Leaders at the intersection of climate and health share what they have learned from the movements they have led.
