World Water Day will be Celebrated March 22, 2016. In celebration, Practice Greenhealth offers up a stream of informative useful information. A healthy water supply is essential for heating, cooling and sanitation. Hospitals use a lot of water in these operations and therefore must be good stewards for their community, especially when there are external stressors to the system by record busting drought and heat. Join two experts, one from the US EPA's WaterSense and one from Practice Greenhealth's Circles of Excellence in Water, Luther Midlefort Mayo Clinic, as they share their knowledge and experience. Be prepared to share your successes and challenges with water management.
