May 2023 NNLM Reading Club: Celebrating Earth Day and Health

One of the NNLM’s National Initiatives is Environmental Determinants of Health. Environmental factors can influence human health, including physical, chemical, and biological factors that are external to a person, and all related behaviors. Collectively, these are referred to as environmental determinants of health (EDHs). Threats to any one of the EDHs can have an adverse impact on the health and well-being of the population. These environmental threats can occur naturally, human-made, or because of social conditions and ways people live. Addressing these EDHs will directly improve the health of the population. This year, as we Celebrate Earth Day and Health, we highlight our previous book selections about Environmental Health, along with three new, exciting additions:

  • Fresh Banana Leaves: Healing Indigenous Landscapes through Indigenous Science by Jessica Hernandez
  • Guardians of the Trees: A Journey of Hope through Healing the Planet by Kinari Webb
  • Waste: One Woman’s Fight Against America’s Dirty Secret by Catherine Coleman Flowers

Learn more about the this month's theme on the newly launched Reading Club website.
