"The Climate Crisis and Human Health: Physicians as Advocates for Prevention" will be presented by Joel Charles, a Wisconsin medical student who recently completed his Masters of Public Health, focusing on the health impacts of climate change. He is currently finishing his medical degree with the intention of practicing family medicine while advocating for climate policy. Toward this end, he works primarily through Physicians for Social Responsibility and Citizens Climate Lobby, a fast-growing, non-partisan group dedicated to creating the political will for a stable climate.
Mr. Charles is helping build a network to provide physicians with efficient, effective ways to make health a central piece of the conversation on climate change. He is also organizing an effort to help climate activists become literate in the health impacts of climate change. For his character, academic achievement, and commitment to service, he was awarded the Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Scholarship in 2009 to pursue his M.D. and Masters Degree at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
