Decarbonizing Health Care: An Urgent Challenge and Opportunity for Change
We know that climate change is happening now and that the health impacts will be felt by generations to come. We also know that health care systems contribute 8.5% of the greenhouse gasses in the US. There is a global call for nations to decarbonize their health systems. Let's start with Minnesota!!

This year the featured speaker is Dr. Elizabeth Schenk, Executive Director for Environmental Stewardship for the Providence Health system.
