On 16 March 2021, The Royal Society of Medicine launched a new 10-part series focusing on climate change. Whilst the world is currently in the grip of the worst health crisis in living memory, the growing climate change emergency poses a far greater threat to the health of humanity.
Each episode positions health and well-being at the centre of the climate change debate. The series considers the wide-ranging effects on health and wellbeing, with episodes focusing on the heart, the skin, the lungs, the digestive system and much more.
All episodes include input from leading experts in their fields discussing the latest evidence and information followed by an in-depth discussion into the clinical consequences of climate change and what can be done to mitigate these.
All episodes are available to watch after the air date below and on the RSM’s YouTube channel.
