EHS Executive Director Douglas Fischer is working hard just to keep up. His 17-year-old daughter can run a 5k almost twice as fast as he can, and his 15-year-old son passes him on Nordic skis without breaking a sweat. One thing Douglas really enjoys doing? Running Environmental Health Sciences, pushing good science into public discussion and policy.
A new Green Deal has been signed between the Dutch government, public bodies and companies in the healthcare sector, including pharmaceutical companies. It is designed to give sustainability in the healthcare sector a further push.
