George Crisp is a GP in a small family medical practice in Shenton Park.
He is the current WA chair and a national committee member of Doctors for the Environment Australia (DEA), a voluntary group who have an interest in the relationship between human health and environmental damage.
Along with a GP colleague ( Dr Richard Yin ), he co-developed "Greenpractice" in 2009, an initiative to promote the awareness of climate change as a health issue in general practice and advocate the health co-benefits of taking action.
George writes regularly in the local and medical media on environmental health matters.
Leading public health organisations and the peer reviewed health literature have increasingly recognised the serious impacts for our health and quality of life should we fail to tackle climate change.
