LOUISVILLE, Ky. — In this exclusive Healio video, Martha Gulati, MD, MS, FACC, FAHA, FASPCissues a call to action for cardiologists to recognize the detrimental effect of climate change on heart health.

At the American Society for Preventive Cardiology conference on preventing cardiovascular disease, Gulati, who is associate director of the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center, director of preventive cardiology at Cedars-Sinai and president of PHAC, discussed no only about how climate change is affecting CV health, but how America’s hospital systems are disproportionately contributing to this global emergency.

“I feel like we can’t keep quiet anymore,” Gulati said. “We have to tackle the climate.”
