Dr. Lemery has expertise in austere and remote medical care, and in 2017, co-authored Enviromedics: the Impact of Climate Change on Human Health.

Dr. Lemery will address the effects of climate change on Earth and how it impacts human health. The global environment is under massive stress from centuries of human industrialization. The projections regarding climate change for the next century and beyond are grim. The impact this will have on human health is tremendous, and we are only just now discovering what the long-term outcomes may be. Dr. Lemery will clarify the science, dispel the myths, and help listeners understand the threats of climate change to human health. Dr. Lemery will also address issues relating to social justice and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Copies of Dr. Lemery’s book Enviromedics: the Impact of Climate Change on Human Health can be purchased online from The Silver Unicorn Bookstore. Thank you for supporting this local business.
