Royal Oak, MI -- Nineteen Health Leaders Fellows, including doctors, nurses, dietitians, and public health professionals, from across Michigan are visiting Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak today to learn how health systems can have a positive environmental impact. The Fellow’s visit coincides with events held at Beaumont to celebrate “Food Day.”
The Ecology Center has been honored by the Michigan Environmental Council for its leadership in the millage campaign earlier this year to support expansion of public transit in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township.
In a reflection of the momentum building to eliminate an unnecessary health threat, four major health systems announced earlier this month that they will stop purchasing furniture treated with toxic flame retardant chemicals. Combined, these four health systems, including Michigan’s Beaumont Health System, represent 7,000 patient beds throughout Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, and Ohio.
