The Climate Crisis and Pregnancy
Drs. Bruce Bekkar and Nathaniel DeNicola discuss the impacts of climate change on US pregnancies, specifically on preterm births, low birth weight and stillbirths. They highlight the racial disparity revealed by their research and discuss ways to address these findings at both the patient care and legislative levels.
This event is the third in a three-part series of lectures on Climate Change, Health, and Social Justice: Issues, Ethics, and Action. See more information on the series and recordings of previous sessions.
