Connecting our health and environmental sustainability

About Green Med

GreenMed is a project aimed at raising awareness and educating medical students of climate change issues. We aim to cultivate environmentally conscious behaviour in the medical students today so that they can become positive role models as clinicians, and take these positive behaviours into hospitals and clinics.
