Champions of Change
Dr. Laura Anderko is the Robert and Kathleen Scanlon Endowed Chair in Values Based Health Care at Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies. As a nurse, scholar, and educator she has worked to raise awareness of students, nurses, and the general public about the impact of climate change on the public’s health, especially those most vulnerable such as children. Focusing on prevention, she has advocated in partnership with organizations such as the American Lung Association to promote an understanding of “health in all policy”, including how the Clean Air Act impacts climate change and associated health impacts.
