Making Emerging Climate Change Work Possible

Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time, and I came to PHI to launch that work.

PHI leadership made climate change and health work a priority, but more than that, they made it possible: with a structure to speed grant applications, an easy hiring process to bring in good people, and communications expertise to make this emerging work highly visible.

Even though my work was emerging, it benefitsedfrom PHI’s reputation. PHI is a leader in the field and the connections were there, the audiences were there, the recognition was there.

Under President Obama, we hosted the surgeon general and the head of the EPA at a PHI event. We launched an alliance of leaders across the country collaborating together on climate change and health. I joined a White House panel as part of a new federal initiative on climate change and health.

Our health, our lives, the sustainability of our earth depend on urgent action. We have a long way to go, but PHI will be leading the way.

—-Linda Rudolph, Director, Center for Climate Change and Health
