Episode Info:

In this episode, host Dr. Sweta Chakraborty asks Joan about how climate change impacts military readiness and training. Joan pulls from her extensive career in the Department of Defense (DoD) to explain how training is the cornerstone of readiness. Climate factors, like intense rainfall impacts on infrastructure and increased heat causing trainee and soldier hospitalizations, pose serious risks to training and ultimately to the ability to successfully carry out missions. Sweta and Joan also discuss how the DoD tracks the migration of diseases as well as the health of military personnel going into combat. Tune into this episode for insights into military readiness that can only come from decades of experience as a civil servant.
