The Individual Leadership award “recognizes a hospital employee who has made an outstanding individual contribution to reducing their hospital’s environmental impact and inspiring the hospital to go green.”

Do you know any individuals out there … I don’t know, could be anybody … who you think might deserve an individual leadership award for making their healthcare facility the greenest it can be? Great! Nominate that person! Here are the guidelines, and you have until September 11th, 2015 to get your ducks in a row.  Once you write your 2 pages, email the nomination to Isabella Wai, Here’s what the OHA has to say about it:

Nominations will be accepted for individuals who have made an outstanding contribution in reducing health care’s environmental impact. Nominees should be from an organization that is an Ontario health service provider who is a member of the Ontario Hospital Association and/or the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care.
