CleanMed Call for Speakers RFP

Practice Greenhealth and Health Care Without Harm are currently accepting CleanMed session proposals for CleanMed 2024 at the Hyatt Regency in Salt Lake City, UT.

Founded in 2001 and presented by non-profit organizations Health Care Without Harm and Practice Greenhealth, CleanMed has gained a global reputation as the premier conference on environmental sustainability in the healthcare sector. There have been a total of 28 CleanMed conferences across the United States, Europe and virtually.

Session Format

CleanMed presents sessions in a variety of formats. The content of each session will cover hot-topic issues that should matter to diverse groups. Discussions will cover various industry ideas about how to promote environmental, clinical, social, and economic strategies that build green, climate-smart health care.

Preference will be given to proposals for sessions that:

  • Can engage CleanMed guests, present powerful topics, and lead dynamic discussions about solutions.
  • Should bring people together and inspire others to take action
  • Include data models, advice, case studies, or skill-building activities
  • Foster creative ways to work together

CleanMed guests enjoy sessions during which they have a way to engage in discussion or connect with speakers and peers to identify solutions to operational and strategic challenges they are facing.

Session Content Level

CleanMed guests represent organizations that are at different stages in their organizational change journey toward a better environment. Accordingly, consider what level your session may most appeal to.

Level 1: Elementary/engaged

These organizations may have a few projects in progress, but sustainability efforts are new or limited and only active in select practices in select units.

Level 2: Strategic/integrated

Sustainability has become a priority and plays a large role in both stakeholder decisions as well as in the company culture. Basically, a cultural shift is emerging that includes external stakeholders and prioritization of sustainability initiatives across several departments.

Level 3: Transforming

Sustainability is built into mission, strategy, and business (including financial) planning and operations.
