Maureen McCue, Iowa chapter board chair of Physicians for Social Responsibility, wrote in an email to The Daily Iowan that she thinks the grant is a good deal for the university and the trainees.
“The changing climate is having a great number of impacts on all our health — some populations more than others,” she wrote. “The sooner more people understand the ramifications of the continued and worsening impacts, hopefully, the sooner people will begin to seriously cease the processes that contribute to the changing climate.”
