Harleen Marwah (@ThereGoesHarMar) dives into the conversation on the links between health, healing, and the climate crisis - and how people in healthcare can work for a healthier world. Recorded in the midst of the record-setting 2020 California fires, we discuss the health effects of a climate in crisis, climate grief, connecting clinical work with a larger ecological consciousness, and how she has organized healthcare students for change.

Harleen Marwah is the Founder and Chair of Medical Students for a Sustainable Future (MS4SF), a community of over 260 medical students from around the world, and she has collaborated with the United Nations on the Paris Agreement. She is currently a current fourth year medical student at the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences, and looks forward to working towards a healthier, more just and equitable future as a pediatrician.
