Our Bodies, Our Planet:
Sustainability and Health
May 18 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm
A sustainable world is one that doesn’t make us sick! In this event, we’ll look at the relationship between sustainability goals and health care. What are the environmental impacts of medicine now? What does a more sustainable health care system look like? Is it enough to “reduce, reuse, recycle” or do we have to reimagine as well?
This evening will be all about your health … come, join us and let’s learn more about healthy living!

About the talk: Sustainability is an important keyword for industry, technology and the economy in general. But what about healthcare?
