Sustainablity at Banner Medical System

As one of the largest medical systems in Arizona, Banner represents an opportunity to work on health care sustainability initiatives.  Currents successes include getting Desflurane off formulary as it is a potent green house gas used in the Anesthesia setting.   We are meeting with Banner leadership to work on creating a Sustainability working group, initiating a recycling program and utilizing more reusable consumables.

Medical School Climate Health Elective

We were able to create, get approval and execute on the first climate health course at the University of Arizona Medical School in less than 7 months!  With 12 lecturers, a wide range of topics and discussion were held engaging students in background information but also solution based advocacy.  This will be an annual course and we are hoping to expand it in the years to come.
