Jessica LeClair, PhDc, MPH, RN, is a clinical faculty member and Ph.D. candidate at the University of Wisconsin (UW) – Madison School of Nursing, with affiliated appointments at the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies and the School of Medicine and Public Health. Past experiences include working as a public health nurse for Public Health Madison and Dane County, and as a community health nurse for the Ho-Chunk Nation. As a public health nurse, she became concerned with local health effects of climate change, such as increased frequency and severity of flooding events. This led her to pursue an MPH that focused on climate justice. She joined UW-Madison in 2018 to empower future nurses to address climate justice and other planetary health issues. Her long-term goal is to build a program of research that identifies and facilitates effective public health practices that advance climate justice and population health.
