Newswise — Vanderbilt Health is hosting spin-off live chat episodes of its award-winning podcast series, “DNA: Discoveries in Action,” on Twitter Spaces. These live chats will explore how climate change is impacting well-being and how listeners can boost their climate literacy and action.

These conversations are designed to cross-pollinate expertise, sectors and perspectives to illustrate the collaborative imperative of tackling climate change.

DNA’s expert guests will explain why they have hope and want listeners to be energetic and reject “doomerism” while embracing reality and emphasizing teamwork without ego to accomplish individual and systemic goals.

The conversations feature guests from Vanderbilt’s Medical Center, School of Law and School of Nursing, along with experts from Metro Nashville government, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Philips.

The conversations will take place on Nov. 13 and 14, from 12:15 pm – 1 pm CT and will be held on Twitter Spaces. Some guests will appear live from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) annual meeting in Nashville with other guests joining remotely.

Twitter Spaces is a feature that allows people to listen to real-time voice conversations taking place in the mobile app. Anyone may join the audience for the Twitter Spaces conversations; users may listen only on desktop. To be a part of the active audience and potentially ask a question, the mobile app is required.
