Live at MATTER: Care for Our World: Intersecting Health Equity and Rapid Climate Change

Sep 1, 9:00 am

The U.S. healthcare system creates an insurmountable portion of national and global waste and pollution, having a direct effect on the pace and severity of climate change. Climate change poses detrimental threats to public health, and its effects are exacerbated for certain communities based on factors such as socioeconomic status, race and ethnicity, gender, and access to care. Innovation is key to making our health system more equitable and sustainable.

Join Loyola University Chicago Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health Dean Elaine Morrato and Loyola School of Environmental Sustainability **Dean Nancy Tuchman **along with a distinguished panel as they dove into the need for innovation in a world impacted by climate change. Learn about the 2022 Loyola Chicago Health Equity Quest and how you can get involved by submitting your idea or attending demo day in October.
