New Film Showcases Health Care’s Mission to Protect People and the Planet

By Gary Cohen, President and Founder, Health Care Without Harm and Practice Greenhealth

Twenty years ago, a small group of doctors, nurses, and health care leaders realized that, in violation of the Hippocratic Oath to “first, do no harm,” some hospital practices were harming patients and the planet. This small effort grew into a global movement advocating for change on the critical environmental health issues of our time. As we live and work within the reality of climate change in the 21st century, our voice is growing even louder.

As part of our 20th anniversary celebration, Health Care Without Harm is excited to release Do No Harm, a short film telling the inspiring story of this global movement.

Share your story, our story. We encourage you to share this film with your colleagues and your community. Use it in your upcoming presentations, or post it on your website. Play it for your patients. Pass it along to your family and friends. In our fight against climate change, health care stands at a turning point in history and we can move to a tipping point. It's within our power and our mission.
