BECERRA: "I am proud to announce the Department of Health and Human Services is adding climate change to the heart of its health care mission by establishing the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity. We are following through on President Biden's commitment to tackle our nation's climate change crisis and building on the work that I started when I was at the attorney general’s office in California to advance environmental justice. This is the first office of its kind at the national level to address climate change and health equity."
