Climate change has been happening for some time and, while we may not actively notice it, has been harming the health of millions across the globe for some time now. Dr. Kristie Ebi is a professor of Global Health and Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Washington and a globally renowned expert in the effect of heat on our health.  In this episode we dive into how climate change impacts our health, why the heat is so dangerous, who and where the majority of the effects take effect. We also talk about how to prepare from the individual level all the way to the global level. This episode is like none other that we have on the podcast!
