Our first ever Clinicians Community Call
was on Friday, May 22nd at 12:00pm EDT. This call was open to everyone, but focused on people who provide healthcare for individuals and communities. This includes physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, midwives, dietitians, traditional healers, community health workers, mental health and social workers, and anyone who puts the health of both people and planet at the center of their purpose and practice.
This call featured a short presentation by the C4PH team and Dr. Carlos Faerron Guzmán, Associate Director of the PHA and Director of the InterAmerican Center for Global Health (CISG) based in Costa Rica. Dr. Faerron Guzmán discussed planetary health in today's times and his thoughts what on it means to be a planetary health clinician. This presentation was followed by space to speak together as a community.
