There are several ways hospitals can reduce their environmental footprints, saving costs and improving patient outcomes at the same time. By conserving energy, reducing waste, and offering healthier and locally sourced food, hospitals are learning that implementing such elements makes a significant difference.
Through general and breakout sessions, the MHA Michigan Green Healthcare Conference will dive deeper into the positive impacts Michigan hospitals and other healthcare organizations have made by encouraging sustainability in healthcare.
The keynote speaker for the 2019 conference is Gary Cohen, who has been a pioneer in the environmental health movement for 30 years. Cohen is president and co-founder of Practice Greenhealth and Health Care Without Harm. He was also instrumental in bringing together the nongovernmental organizations and hospital systems that formed the Healthier Hospitals Initiative. All three were created to transform the healthcare sector to be environmentally sustainable and serve as anchor institutions to support environmental health in their communities.
