From allergies and asthma to infectious diseases and even malnutrition, the indirect effects of climate change are taking a toll on our most valuable resource, kids!
On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Ask the Mayo Mom host Dr. Angela Mattke, a Mayo Clinic pediatrician, is joined by Dr. Molly Herr, a pediatric anesthesiologist at Mayo Clinic Children’s Center to discuss climate change and its effects on children’s health.
In addition to her clinical care for children, Dr. Herr has been an advocate and leader in Mayo Clinic’s Green initiatives. She has also been involved with creating sustainable practices at Mayo Clinic and medical student education related to these topics.
