Please join Dr. Megan Ranney, academic dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, for a special National Public Health Week conversation with Gina McCarthy, White House National Climate Advisor.
Gina McCarthy is the first National Climate Advisor—the president’s chief advisor on domestic climate policy—and leads the White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy focused on mobilizing a whole-of-government approach to tackling the climate crisis, creating good-paying, union jobs, and securing environmental justice. Previously, she served as 13th Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and then as President and CEO of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). One of the nation’s most trusted and accomplished voices on climate issues, she has been at the forefront of environmental and public health progress in a variety of leading roles for over three decades.
An interactive audience Q&A will follow.
Presented by the School of Public Health and cosponsored by the Climate Solutions Lab.
