Dear NAD:

A suggestion for a future conversation topic:

My colleague Jessica Pierce and I are working on 
a project we call "The Green Health Center" here at 
University of Nebraska Medical Center.  We 
are exploring ideas for environmentally sound 
health care:  How can adequate health care be 
provided to all with a minimal ecological 
footprint?  What are our obligations to limit 
health care environmental costs (such as toxic 
wastes, limited resources) in order to protect 
nature and future generations?

Our current project is funded by the Greenwall 
Foundation of New York City.  We have seven 
specific questions we analysing through June 
1999.  We would love to receive input from 
the NAD constituency, and we have ideas that 
we would like to share.

If you would like to discuss this proposal with 
us, we can send you more information on our 

Sincerely yours, Andrew
