Addressing the Health Impacts of Climate Change

Climate change is one of the most important public health crises of our day. The impact of this threat may fall most heavily on populations such as the patients we treat at ZSFG and similar ones globally. This month, the Annals of Internal Medicine highlighted this focus in an American College of Physicians Position Paper on Environmental Health. In the October issue of the ZSFG Department of Medicine Newsletter we highlight faculty members who are taking leadership roles in addressing this challenge.
