Hackensack University Medical Center leading the way on safer chemicals and products case study

Description

As chronic disease management statistics continue to grow, health care is focused on reversing that trend. We now know certain types of cancer, learning and developmental disabilities, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, reproductive health and fertility problems and asthma are some of the chronic diseases that can be linked in some way to the harmful chemicals we are all exposed to.

Hackensack University Medical Center has built a strong foundation by implementing a safer chemicals policy and including safer chemicals as a standing agenda item at the Environment of Care committee meetings.
