Didi Pershouse: The Ecology of Care

Didi Pershouse is the founder of the Center for Sustainable Medicine and has developed a practice and theoretical framework for systems-based ecological medicine—restoring health to people as well as the social and ecological systems around them. In her work she connects the dots between soil health and public health, and the role of beneficial microorganisms in maintaining a healthy climate both inside and outside the body.

This talk about her work is moderated by Katharine Zywert, who researches social-ecological systems change and health at the University of Waterloo in Canada and is the co-editor of a new book, Health in the Anthropocene.

This talk is part of our Life Saves the Planet Speaker Series in partnership with GBH Forum Network. Learn more about this series here: https://forum-network.org/partner/biodiversity-livable-climate/
