If a hurricane strikes where you live, how does it affect your health and well-being?
In this Kaiser Health News video, senior correspondent Julie Appleby and Georges Benjamin, the executive director of the American Public Health Association, discuss the ongoing public and environmental health concerns resulting from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria — and the latest natural disaster of wildfires in California. They talk about health preparedness and funding as well as mental health and gun violence.
