The Not Old Better Show featuring Dr. Debra Hendrickson:

Sponsored by QualiaWelcome to another enlightening episode of the Not Old Better Show. Today’s show is brought to you by Qualia Senolytic. We are honored to have a special guest, Dr. Debra Hendrickson, who will be discussing her groundbreaking new brand new book, The Air They Breathe: A Pediatrician on the Frontlines of Climate Change. This episode is particularly crucial as it delves into the intersection of climate change and children’s health, an area of increasing concern and importance.

Dr. Hendrickson is a board-certified pediatrician based in Reno, Nevada, the fastest-warming city in the United States. With nearly two decades of experience in pediatrics and an impressive background in environmental studies, Dr. Hendrickson brings a unique and authoritative perspective to this pressing issue. Her extensive work in both fields makes her an invaluable resource for understanding how climate change directly affects the health and well-being of our youngest and most vulnerable population—our children.

In The Air They Breathe, Dr. Hendrickson provides a timely and revelatory look into the myriad ways that climate change is impacting children’s health. Through vivid stories from her clinic, she shares heart-wrenching accounts of young patients affected by worsening air quality, extreme heat, and the increasing frequency of natural disasters. These stories are not just medical cases; they are urgent calls to action, highlighting the immediate need for comprehensive climate policies and community efforts to protect future generations.

This book is not only a critical examination of the health crises emerging from a changing climate but also a profound reminder of our moral responsibility to our children. Dr. Hendrickson emphasizes that the love and care we show to the youngest members of our society must include a commitment to preserving the environment they will inherit. Her insights are invaluable for parents, educators, healthcare professionals, and anyone concerned with the future of our planet.

Join us as we explore the compelling narratives and scientific insights presented in The Air They Breathe. We will discuss the specific health threats posed by climate change, practical steps that can be taken to mitigate these risks, and the broader implications for our communities and policies. Dr. Hendrickson’s expertise and passion make this a conversation you won’t want to miss.
