Doctors for the environment

by Eleanor Evans

Many of you won’t know but I am now a general committee member of the SA branch of the national organization, Doctors for the Environment.  This organization works VERY hard to advocate on behalf of the community with respect to how the environment can impact the health of our patients.  In recent times, the organization has been active in pushing for climate change to be included on the agenda of the upcoming G20 meeting and now more recently has published a letter sent to Richard Warburton about the upcoming review of the Renewable Energy Target (http://dea.org.au/images/general/201406_RET_review_letter_DEA.pdf).

Please have a look at our website or Facebook page, make the most of the online resources and know our members are equally concerned about the long term impacts of poor policy when it comes to pollution and the importance of setting adequate targets to drive change!
