I enjoyed being part of an interesting conversation on extreme heat, health, and COVID-19 with my colleagues Dave Hondula, Assistant Professor at Arizona State University, and Vjollca Berisha, Senior Epidemiologist at Maricopa County Department of Public Health, for the Vitalyst Health Foundation’s Spark podcast. We discussed the causes of extreme heat, how it impacts vulnerable populations, and what research and practice tells us about the current challenges and opportunities in increasing our communities’ resilience to it.
