If a hurricane strikes where you live, how does it affect your health and well-being?
In this Kaiser Health News video conversation, senior correspondent Julie Appleby and Georges Benjamin, the executive director of the American Public Health Association, hold a wide-ranging discussion about the continuing public and environmental health issues resulting from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, as well as other natural disasters such as the wildfires ravaging California. They also touch on a range of other issues related to public health preparedness and funding as well as mental health and gun violence.
