RAYMOND J. Baxter, PhD, senior vice president of community benefit, research and health policy at Kaiser Permanente, kicks off this year’s CleanMed 2016 Conference & Exhibition as its keynote speaker.

Baxter is just one of more than 100 presenters—all recognized in their fields—at this year’s event, which also features an exhibit floor where attendees can find out about the latest environmentally preferable and sustainable products and services.

CleanMed’s mission is to accelerate the health care sector’s commitment to environmental sustainability and regenerative health, to improve the health of people and the environment by:

  • Maximizing opportunities for the health care sector’s development, adoption and dissemination of environmentally preferable products and practices, and its design, construction and operation of green buildings.
  • Convening health care stakeholders—senior administrators, clinicians, purchasing professionals, researchers, building designers and vendors of safer products and services—to share environmentally regenerative practices.
  • Providing examples of best practices and tools in environmental sustainability that reduce health care’s environmental footprint.
  • Promoting environmentally sustainable design practices and construction materials in health care.
  • Incorporating environmentally preferable purchasing practices into health care and group purchasing organizations.
  • Showcasing products that are occupationally safer and less toxic to the patient and the environment.
  • Evaluating alternatives to medical waste incineration.
