Justice in Public Health: Climate Justice and Healthy Equity within Indigenous Communities

October 10, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


About the Event:

Join us to hear from SPH’s new Assistant Professor in the Division of Environmental Health Sciences, Kyle X. Hill present his research on climate change and health equity within Indigenous Communities. Racism and climate change have disproportionate effects on the lives of minoritised people both within countries and between the Global North and the Global South. Dr. Hill’s research aims to address this through three main aims:

  • Show the unequal health impacts of climate change due to racism, xenophobia, and discrimination.
  • Highlight inequalities in responsibility for climate change and the effects thereof.
  • Highlight the pathways through which climate change, discrimination, and health interact in most affected areas.
