Love and CleanMed: Nashville edition
For over 15 years, CleanMed has been the top national environmental conference for leaders in health care sustainability. In addition to the cutting-edge programs and networking opportunities, there’s something else that keeps everyone coming back: a sincere love for the work being done and the people doing it.
Practice Greenhealth’s member engagement team and CleanMed attendees share why they love CleanMed, and like any good love, we think you’ll find it contagious. Join us May 7–9 in Nashville.
“Not only is CleanMed a wonderful educational event, it is the place where I get to personally connect with and thank the members that I work with all year. It is seriously a positive balm, a place where there are three days of inspiration of ways to make the world a better place for ourselves and generations to come.” — Hermine Levey Weston, RN, member engagement manager
“It is my favorite conference because of the health care focus and the health care professionals attending. Real issues and real solutions.” — CleanMed 2018 attendee
“I look forward to being with people who care about the environment as much as I do, and learning best environmental practices from sustainability leaders and experts from all backgrounds.”
— Julie Moyle, RN, member engagement manager
“When I attended CleanMed last year, I couldn’t believe my fortune that an event and network like this even existed. My breadth of knowledge on the subject expanded tenfold after my attendance last year to the point where I am now known as the ‘it girl’ in my department when it comes to sustainability in health care.” — Emily Sbiroli, UC San Diego Health System resident
“This year’s CleanMed provides a lot for clinicians, and I’m extremely interested in seeing how we can support their role in healthy communities.”
— Iqbal Mian, member engagement manager
“CleanMed is pretty much my favorite time of the year. Who doesn’t like to connect, be inspired, and explore a new and fun city?”
— Lauren Koch, climate and health associate director
“I had a great time, met a lot of people, and got some great ideas. Our hospital was given an award, and I enjoyed the awards ceremony and party. I loved the fact that food was included in the price and was readily available. I will come again!” — CleanMed 2018 attendee
“CleanMed is the endcap to an amazing year — an opportunity to celebrate, learn, and reconnect with others who are out there every day doing the heavy lifting on creating the health care sector of the future. I come to CleanMed each year to refill my tank, to get excited about new ideas and opportunities, and to toast my colleagues across the country for work well done.”
— Cecilia DeLoach Lynn, LEED AP, director of sector performance & recognition
“This year we have planned more sessions bringing together experts in greening the supply chain to inspire you and further efforts to move markets for safer and healthier products and services.”
— Beth Eckl, environmental purchasing program director
“I found the breakout sessions extremely helpful. They were comprehensive and scheduled in a way that I could hear one session on all of the important initiatives to me: Climate change, clean energy, food & nutrition, waste reduction, and more.” — CleanMed 2018 attendee
“Cleanmed is the most educational and fun gathering of health care sustainability leaders out there!” — Christopher Bodkin, data coordinator for sector performance
“I learned a lot of information that will be directly applicable to my work, and I met a lot of folks that I will stay in touch with.” — CleanMed 2018 attendee
“Excellent overall experience, thank you! Excellent speakers, well orchestrated, with plenty of opportunity for networking. The first conference I’ve ever attended where the food was so memorable; having breakfast with a farmer at our table was a nice addition.” — CleanMed 2018 attendee
“I have participated in every Cleanmed, either as a hospital member and now as Practice Greenhealth staff. It’s a time of nourishment, connection, and support. CleanMed inspires, educates, and empowers us to keep on doing the important work that we all care so much about.” — Janet Howard, member engagement director
