Did you know that the healthcare industry is a significant contributor to greenhouse gases, and has a larger carbon footprint than the aviation industry?
Dr. Stephanie Tom has been grappling with the impact of medicine on the environment for some time now. Last year, she established a Planetary Health Committee within the ORA. Following many months of hard work, her team recently published the first ever Rheumatology Toolkit to implement sustainable healthcare solutions.
We are excited to share it with you. Congratulations to Dr. Tom and the ORA Planetary Health Committee!
