SAVE THE DATE - Green Healthcare Conference

Please view the attached "save the date" information for the Michigan Health and Hospitals Association, Green Healthcare Conference.
It is a great conference for anyone working with institutional foodservice or dietetics, from schools & universities, to hospitals & hotels.
Gary Cohen, president and co-founder of Health Care Without Harm will be the keynote speaker. Bringing his expertise and enthusiasm to Michigan Healthcare.
The food track will include speakers from 4 hospitals and schools that deal with the major food distribution companies available in Michigan. They will cover how they identify and purchase local foods using GPOs. 
Other speakers/panels include a CEO panel from hospitals throughout the state of Michigan and John Turenne, reknowned speaker from Kaiser Permanente on the West Coast. He is the founder and President of Sustainable Food Systems, and he was one of the lead innovators in sustainable food practices during the creation of the Yale Sustanable Food Project. This conference has really been put together well to incorporate many areas of Green health. 
And... it will have Dietitian CEUs for all sessions October 5th! We are still awaiting approval of the exact number, however each session including poster sessions, meet guidelines for credentialing.
Thank you,
