Dr. Geminn Louis “Gelo” Apostol is a Filipino physician, educator, and researcher specializing in environmental public health, climate-resilient health systems, and socio-ecological determinants of health. He currently leads the Environmental Health Program of the Ateneo de Manila University School of Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH) where his team generates evidence on the impact of environmental pollution and climate change on health outcomes. Also serving as a technical advisor for the Philippine Inter-Agency Committee on Environmental Health (IACEH), he engages government agencies, academia, civil society and the private sector towards operationalizing intersectoral policies and programs for environmental protection and public health promotion.

Driven by a firm belief that the health of the planet and people are one, Gelo and his team continue to trailblaze environmental health research and advocacy from the national to the local levels — from developing the Philippines’ National Environmental Health Action Plan 2030 (NEHAP) to empowering at-risk communities to engage in citizen science towards mitigating the health risks of environmental toxicants. Throughout all these initiatives, Gelo strives to lead with science, to engage deeply and broadly, and to work 'for' and 'with' the people.
