Climate Change, Emotional Inflammation, and Physician Leaders with Dr. Lise Van Susteren

Climate change is most often thought of in terms of unpleasant weather events.  We occasionally think about specific animal species being impacted by climate change.  Less focused upon are the mental health consequences experienced from an unpredictable environment. Lise Van Susteren, MD, is a general and forensic psychiatrist in Washington, DC, and an expert on the physical and psychological impacts of climate change. In 2011 she co-authored The Psychological Effects of Global Warming on the United States: And Why the U.S. Mental Health System Is Not Adequately Prepared. Van Susteren is also clinical associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at George Washington University and has been a consultant to the executive branch of the U.S. government profiling world leaders.  She joins host Mike Sacopulos to discuss her work.  Meteorologists and politicians can debate the causes of climate change, but physicians and other healthcare professionals are left to care for the people impacted.  https://www.lisevansusteren.com/ https://www.amazon.com/Emotional-Inflammation-Discover-Triggers-Equilibrium-ebook/dp/B07SH4425B Learn more about the American Association for Physician Leadership at www.physicianleaders.org
