Join Dr. Rashmi Chadha for her 45-minute talk, which will explore the following topics: knowledge of the triple planetary crisis; understanding of the concept of planetary health; awareness of climate justice; appreciation of our interconnectedness with the planet; and an introduction to planetary health solutions!

Rashmi Chadha is a mother, wife, and doctor. She is trying to be a healthy planetarian! She provides addiction medicine care at Vancouver General Hospital and is a Clinical Associate Professor in UBC’s Department of Family Practice. Dr. Chadha recognized that the physician voice was severely lacking in the public forum on the climate and ecological crisis. In 2020 she co founded Doctors for Planetary Health – West Coast and most recently instigated a new Vancouver Coastal Health medical staff committee on Planetary Health. She is moved by the increasing interest and dedication of physicians and other healthcare professionals taking up the gauntlet to fight for our planet for this and future generations.
