Description

The health of our patients, employees and community is tied to the health of our environment. 

St. Luke’s mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve. This compels us to look at how climate is impacting health outcomes and our organization’s environmental impacts that contribute to the climate conversation. 

This lecture series serves to deepen the conversation specific to Idaho on heat, smoke, human health and how St. Luke’s works within our communities.

Decarbonizing Health Care

October 26, 2022

We'll discuss how hospital systems are implementing climate smart concepts. Based on her 26-year career in health care as vice president and environmental stewardship officer for Kaiser Permanente, Kathy Gerwig will share her experiences and journey implementing sustainability concepts within hospital systems.

Pulling it All Together in Our Communities

December 7, 2022

We'll discuss St. Luke’s environmental sustainability framework, our journey and how we are working within the sustainability community. Dr. Sims will discuss how clinicians can get involved in climate actions within St. Luke’s, Idaho Clinicians for Climate and Health (ICCH), and national organizations. Stephanie Wicks will highlight the work St. Luke’s has underway and the City of Boise will join the conversation to discuss their climate work they are leading in the city and state.
