Soup with Substance talk by Alexandre A. Martins, MI, Assistant Professor
Theology Department & College of Nursing, Marquette University

Environmental Health: Ecological Issues and Their Impact on Population Health

Alexandre Martins, MI, will give a talk about global health and environmental health in conjunction with the Haggerty exhibition Collection Spotlight: Environmental Health.

This talk will show the relationship between ecological issues and people’s health. Considering the perspective suggested by Pope Francis in his encyclical Laudato Sí: On the Care of our Common House, this talk will discuss how the current ecological crisis (visible in the photographs in the Haggerty Museum) impacts the health status of people, especially the poor, those who are more vulnerable to the effects of this crisis. Pope Francis suggests an integral ecology in which environmental and social concerns must be addressed together. He affirms “Today… we have to realize that a true ecological approach always becomes a social approach; it must integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor” (no. 49). In addition, the poor are the most vulnerable to diseases and to die prematurely because of lack of health care. Often enough, they live in areas with higher risks to suffer the impacts of environmental issues, including natural and human-made disasters. This talk will present concrete contexts where one can see the impact of ecological issues on the poor’s life and health. Moreover, it will suggest ways to begin a movement to promote an integral ecology in actions of global health from a community-based approach.
