This Year’s Highlights:

Keynote Speakers
Annie Leonard
Author, Activist
Annie Leonard is the author and host of the online film, The Story of Stuff, a fast paced, fact filled expose on the hidden environmental and social costs of current systems of production and consumption. The film has become an internet phenomenon, generating over 6.5 million views in 200 countries and territories since its launch in December 2007. She is now working on a book version of the film, to be published by Free Press of Simon and Schuster in March 2010.

Lisa P. Jackson (invited)
Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency
Administrator Jackson has been invited to speak and has expressed interest but is unable to confirm until closer to the event. The EPA has recently taken the lead among federal agencies on issues important to sustainable health care, including increased regulation of chemicals and automobile and building emissions.

Five Preconference Sessions on sustainable food in health care,  eco-pharmacology, climate and health literacy, hospital energy management, and greening the operating room.  

Two local tours of health care facilities, plus a trip to the local farmer’s market
Hospital plenary session featuring executives of Baltimore area hospitals

Practice Greenhealth Awards and Gala—dinner, awards, and dancing!

Plus more than 50 exciting sessions featuring national experts and health facility staff on topics such as sustainable health care economics, climate neutrality, sustainability in small facilities establishing baseline measurements, energy strategies, regenerative architecture, pesticides, hospital textiles, research needs and more.

This year, CleanMed will be held in Baltimore, MD, which is easily accessed by train or car from the East Coast, and has a large international airport nearby with local rail into the city.  A number of family-friendly attractions are within easy walking distance of CleanMed, which will be held at the Convention Center near the Inner Harbor.  Baltimore’s proximity to Washington, DC, makes the location ideal for an extended trip to the nation’s capital. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to network, learn and share your passion for greening healthcare!
