"We are two Peninsula medical students who are committed to tackling global health and sustainability issues. If there is anything we’ve learned from this year’s unprecedented fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that the problems many of us have long been dismissing might soon catch up with us. This is why we were inspired to bring the Planetary Health Report Card (PHRC) initiative to the Peninsula Medical School."The Planetary Health Report Card is an international effort that urges students and staff to engage their medical institutions with planetary health and sustainability health care. Climate change can cause all kinds of health problems for patients, including heat-related morbidity and mortality, respiratory diseases and allergies, water- and vector-borne diseases, and food insecurity. Climate change also disproportionately affects minorities and indigenous peoples, further exacerbating existing structural health inequities."
