Guest: Dr. Aparna Bole

Episode 3: Healthcare

In our third episode of Venture Forward Together we talk about healthcare. THANK YOU to all of the medical professionals on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic and those working tirelessly to care for all patients during this time of crisis. We truly appreciate you!

This discussion focuses on the importance of health and sustainability with Dr. Aparna Bole, the Medical Director of Community Integration at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children. Dr. Bole shares her work on environmental health and passion for sustainable, urban development and how it can benefit the health of communities. She is a rockstar advocate for pediatric environmental health and a leader in bringing sustainability to the forefront of healthcare innovation.

Aparna recommends the resources from Health Care Without Harm, an organization leading the global movement for environmentally responsible healthcare. She is featured in the short, animated film “Do No Harm,” in which she shares how a group of caregivers sparked a new way of thinking about health care’s role in protecting the health of patients and the environment. Watch it right after you listen to our conversation! And check out the Health Care Without Harm website for resources and stories on “green health.”

Cheers to greener health!

Thank you for joining us for Venture Forward Together, an interview series with friends and colleagues working in the sustainability and social impact fields.

Onwards and Upwards!

“It’s been incredible to see how many young people are playing the leadership role in advocacy related to climate action, but also in other areas that are so important to pediatric health [such as] gun violence prevention, health equity issues around system racism and health disparities. ”
