Wendy Ring, a 56-year-old family physician who is riding a bicycle across the country will give a talk on the dangers of climate change to public health at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 20 at the The Democracy Center in Cambridge.
“Twenty five years as a family doctor have taught me how to translate science into plain English and help people make changes to improve their health. In the tradition of Paul Revere, my husband and I are riding around the country to wake people up to the danger we face and the need to move clean energy to the top of our national agenda,” Ring said in a press release.
Ring and her husband started in July from Oregon in the Pacific Northwest riding a tandem bicycle and aim to reach Washington DC by the end of September. The talk is co-sponsored by the Boston chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby, Better Future Project, and 350MA. The Democracy Center is located at 45 Mount Auburn Street.
