Dr. Blair Wylie joins Dr. Tamarra James-Todd to discuss how clinicians have an important role to play in the work toward beauty justice through educating patients about simple changes to reduce exposures, informing other clinicians and practitioners about environmental health, and advocating for more upstream, structural changes. She also highlights the importance of clinicians and health educators listening when entering communities—and how lasting and creative solutions can be developed through working with communities.
