Medical Centers, Nursing Schools and Student Health Facilities
Medical centers pose unique challenges to sustainability. Hospitals have a large ecological footprint as well as strict regulations and compliance mandates. Learn how the UCSF Medical Center team is working towards a more sustainable hospital with green cleaners, purchasing, materials management, nursing and operations while continuing to provide superior patient care. Jack Henderson will join the panel to address how UCSF chooses sustainable produce and meats for its dining facility and will also discuss the challenges of composting in the kitchen.
