How many remember the issues with the PEPCO Plant and Kingman Island issues in DC? What was amazing about Kingman Island is that this natural space was the initial site for Six Flags. The EJ Orgs fought alongside with the DC Residents to prevent the Amusement Park in the District and won. However, they are still working against the negative public health impacts taking place from the PEPCO Plant.

Dr. Wilson and other: A lot of people choose not to eat meat for climate reasons. Is a vegan diet the right response to the kinds of contamination from hog/chicken farms you mention? I’m interested in commitments that are of direct local benefit and are in synch with global climate action
EJS Lindsey Tully
01:15:15
Could you draw on your experience as a physician and discuss in what ways you've seen a patient’s living situation and/or environment play a direct role in their health and wellbeing? In what ways did your clinical work prompt you to get involved with Virginia Clinicians for Climate Action?

Not sure how many of you remember when DC hosted a National Road Race (similar to Indy 500 & Monte Carlo) throughout the city (area surrounding RFK Stadium)? The District did not even think of the air pollution &/or noise pollution effects--only looked at the $$$ and "glitz" it would bring to the District--no concern for the residents living in those areas...crazy (purposefully because it was done in an area that the government felt had no say--almost like a "temporary imminent domain"

How many people are aware that a large portion of NYC's Central Park was a majority African Community that was taken by local/state governmental imminent domain process??? It's a beautiful green space in NYC, but ask yourself, where were those residents (African American residents/businesses) displaced to & how did this impact the residents of the community personal and generational human health/wealth/etc.)...

Gaige—what happened to the Harvard study that showed disproportionate Covid infections and PM 2.5 and impact on marginalized communities. Had that data been validated?
EJS Samantha Rizzo
01:32:42
In addition to Dr. Kerr’s research, in what other ways has COVID-19 highlighted environmental health disparities within our communities?
Robert Harvey
01:33:26
one way are the bus routes have drastically changed. the n30 & s30 scheduling has been drastically reduced. service restrictions
Magic Bean!
01:34:53
Do you think clinicians have a role in advocating forconsumer driven policy change? (I.e transitioning alternative energy won’t happen until consumers demand it and I don’t think most people are aware of how much progress can be impacted by consumer patterns). Since it’s an issue, could anyone speak to whether clinicians have a role in educating patients on ways to opt for alternative energy sources?
Sacoby Wilson
01:37:50
We are doing work with EDF to assess the impact of reduced air quality due to warehouses and goods movement
Sacoby Wilson

We also have a project with Consumer Reports that focuses on differential siting of Amazon warehouses on communities of color

Dr. Wilson the number of masks one would possibly have to wear when working outdoors in severe heat. Dr. Tummala & Dr. Kerr...how long should one wear a surgical mask? Or rather, how many surgical masks should a person wear in a single day to really be protective for yourself and for others?
