This Monday: The Environment and Our Health

Never in recent history have we been more concerned about our health.  The connections between environmental health and our own personal health are often overlooked, misunderstood or downplayed.  Dr. Maany will discuss how sustainable land use and habitat conservation benefits our health.  Specifically, she will address various infectious diseases such as Lyme disease, West Nile virus, Covid-19, and more.  She will also draw connections between environmental health and our mental well-being.


Veda Maany, MD is an emergency medicine physician, practicing for over 16 years, with a strong personal interest in environmental health. Her mission is to bring environmental issues to the forefront of the medical field.  She aims to incorporate environmental issues into clinical practice as she believes that the health of the environment is a reflection of our society’s overall health and well-being. She is an active member of her township’s Environmental Advisory Committee and the mother of two environmental enthusiasts.
