Our Team

This initiative would not have been possible without the dedication of students, faculty, and mentors across the country. We would like to thank everybody who helped inspire, edit, and implement this report card.

Project Founders

Founder and Director: Karly Hampshire

Co-founders: Bennett Kissel, Nuzhat Islam, and Colin Baylen Contributing author: Sarah Schear, MS

Two years ago, we launched the Human Health and Climate Change Club at UCSF. Since then, we have met with policymakers, organized expert panels, enacted sustainability initiatives, proposed resolutions to state medical associations, and presented at conferences. In 2019, we decided to craft a standardized and reproducible Planetary Health Report Card for the evaluation of medical schools. We are hopeful that this report card will help inspire institutional change, at a time where institutional engagement with planetary health is urgently needed.

Karly Hampshire is a 3rd year medical student at UCSF and is interested in a career in internal medicine, planetary health, and medical education. Colin Baylen is a 3rd year medical student at UCSF interested in the consequences of climate change on health outcomes and disparities. Sarah Schear, MS, is a 4th year medical student at UCSF interested in climate change and global health equity. She will be applying to Pediatrics residency this fall.
