You are here

Thursday, 16 September 2021 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Black Summer 2019 / 2020 left many people in Canberra with personal insight into the health impacts of our changing climate.  This discussion will explore both the health impacts of climate change and the health benefits of our natural environment.


Physician and cardiologist, Dr Arnagretta Hunter is the Human Futures Fellow at the Australian National University and a clinical Senior Lecturer in the Rural Clinical School at ANU Medical School.  Her research interests are in the health consequences of climate change, and her clinical work focuses on patient-centred care and preventative medicine, with an interest in social and environmental determinants of health. 

Raised in Melbourne, she completed a BA(Hons) in political science at University of Melbourne before embarking on medicine at the University of Sydney. In addition to her work in health, Dr Hunter is the Chair of the Commission for the Human Future working on global catastrophic risks and co-hosts the Policy Forum Podcast with Prof. Sharon Bessell for the Crawford School of Public Policy at ANU.

This talk will be held in the ANBG Theatrette.
