Talking health and climate change
AMA President Dr Tony Bartone met recently with Doctors for the Environment Australia (DEA) to discuss the health implications of climate change. The lengthy meeting focused on climate change as a health issue, sustainability in health care, and the forthcoming federal election. Topically, the AMA heard that heat kills more people than any other natural phenomenon, and about the urgent need to act on emissions reduction. Pictured with Dr Bartone are Dr Laura Beaton, Professor Kingsley Faulkner (Chair) and Dr Eugenie Kayak.
