How a health system responds to Climate Change through a Total Health Approach

I am getting the opportunity to represent Kaiser Permanente, the only health insurer with a strong position on climate, at this year’s CleanMed Europe conference, in Oxford England (@CleanMedEurope), and the accepted posters and case studies, from health systems around the world, have been posted. They are all excellent and inspiring. We are not alone. When we think of innovation in health care, innovating to support total health is a great place for health systems to think and act. We are not a leading industry in health, we should lead society in health.

Our poster is below. It was created by my colleague Cat Brozena (@CatBrozena). She did a great job putting a lot of areas of effort together. Comments welcome.
