Healthcare Systems and Climate Learning Collaborative
The health care sector accounts for nearly one-tenth of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, and according to a Department of Energy report, hospitals use 836 trillion BTUs of energy annually. In consideration of these and other data, and based on discussions with health care systems and associations, as well as the work of the Maine Climate Council’s Community Resilience Planning, Public Health and Emergency Management Working Group, MPHA is offering an opportunity for those working in health care to learn from experts and share activities, ideas and plans for climate change preparedness, adaptation, mitigation, and sustainability within their organization. The Healthcare Systems and Climate Learning Collaborative meets virtually, each quarter, on the second Tuesday at 10:00am. The Collaborative is open to non-MPHA members.
