Earth Day with HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra

Vaseline 2 months ago


The Hopkins Business of Health Initiative welcomes Xavier Becerra, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, for a fireside chat on health and climate – the threat to human health, the challenge of environmental justice, and the unprecedented efforts of the Administration- Biden to help hospitals and health care systems reduce their own significant carbon footprint.

The conversation with the secretary will be followed by a panel discussion with healthcare voices: how the industry and healthcare providers are trying to create change. With the healthcare sector currently responsible for 8.5% of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, this is a tall order.

Coffee precedes the fireside chat at 8:30 am
