Opinion: Listen: Chelsea Clinton on fracking, oxygen shortages, and other public health crises

Chelsea Clinton joins the “First Opinion Podcast” this week to discuss her work in public health, starting with the dangers of fracking to maternal and cardiovascular health. Clinton grew up as her parents both built noted political legacies, but it was 1980s-era newsletters on endangered species and the environment that first captured her interest in the intersection of environmental justice and public health.

The conversation started with the First Opinion that Clinton wrote with Terry McGovern and Micaela Martinez, her Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health colleagues, “End fracking exemptions, a threat to maternal and public health,” and went from there.
