Connecting Health Care With Public & Environmental Health
With our members, CHA is working to raise the issue of environmental stewardship as a mission–based clinical and public policy imperative. We act as responsible stewards of God's creation as we respond as a ministry to building healthier communities. This 20-page booklet, "Connecting Health Care With Public and Environmental Health," contains an article by Ted Schettler, MD, MPH, science director of the Science and Environmental Health Network (SEHN). Dr. Schettler has worked extensively with community groups and non-governmental organizations throughout the U.S. and internationally, addressing many aspects of human health and the environment. He has served on advisory committees of the U.S. EPA and National Academy of Sciences. The booklet is part of CHA's ongoing commitment to provide resources to Catholic health care as we collectively work to protect the environment, minimize environmental hazards and reduce our contribution to the problem of climate change. As a ministry, we care for those who are harmed by the environment, strive for internal practices to ensure environmental safety and advocate public policies and private actions that bring solutions.
