Coming into focus: How public health can protect people and save the planet

Climate change increasingly reveals how our health is tied to the environment. The latest issue of Findings explores how factors such as air quality, water safety, exposure to  toxicants, and food impact our health. However, the effects of climate change are not uniform. Particularly, people of color and lower-income communities often bear a disproportionately greater burden. As public health practitioners, we are obligated to understand these environmental impacts on our health and work toward reducing such disparities.

Findings is the alumni magazine of the University of Michigan School of Public Health and is published twice each year.
