Get Inspired – At CleanMed!
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Environmental Excellence Awards Program. Awards will be presented at a Gala on Wednesday night, May 2, at the 2012 CleanMed Conference at the Denver Convention Center. In addition to a variety of sessions on climate, energy, green building, waste, purchasing and healthier foods -- six break-out sessions will provide a detailed description of each of the six HHI challenges areas – Engaged Leadership with Seema Wadhwa and Blair Sadler, Healthier Food with Michelle Gottlieb and Lucia Sayre, Leaner Energy with John Ebers, Less Waste with Janet Brown, Safer Chemicals with Rachel Gibson and Tracey Easthope and Smarter Purchasing with Beth Eckl and Kaeleigh Sheehan. All of the sessions will be recorded and posted to the HHI Website. The exhibit hall will feature an HHI booth where staffers will engage participants in the initiative and answer any questions.
Conversations are underway regarding the value of the collected data – for system-wide roll up, for regional engagement and for climate mitigation targets.
