C4PH Resources - Clinicians Community Calls

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.  

The slides can be found here, and the most important parts of the recording here.


Our second Clinicians Community Call was on Wednesday, July 29th, at 12pm EDT. It focused on ideas about how we can best educate patients on planetary health concepts, including those related to COVID-19, as we begin a project to create patient-facing materials. Participants had the chance to co-create their ideas and designs for patient-facing materials in small breakout rooms.

We recorded the first part of the Zoom meeting (before we split up into smaller breakout rooms), which is available here. The corresponding slides are available to view here. The breakout rooms could not be recorded, unfortunately, but notes from our breakout room report back discussion can be found here.
Our third Clinicians Community Call was on October 23rd, 2020 at 11am EDT. It started with a recap of our previous interactive call on designing patient materials and featured four amazing speakers from a wide range of backgrounds who are leaders in planetary health: Dr. Mary Jo Kreitzer, founding director of the Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota, Jonathan Jennings and Dr. Alvi Muldani of the U.S. and Indonesian leadership teams at Health in Harmony and ASRI, and registered dietician, Lily Correa, from the Plant-based Lifestyle Medicine Clinic atAmerica's oldest public hospital, NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue. Participants had the chance to discuss what they heard and how to implement planetary health in their own lives in small breakout rooms.

We recorded the meeting (except the breakout rooms), which is available here. The corresponding slides are available to view here
