The Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI) is a national campaign to implement a completely new approach to improving environmental health and sustainability in the health care sector.
Eleven of the largest, most influential U.S. health systems, comprising over 475 hospitals with more than $20 billion in purchasing power, worked with Health Care Without Harm (HCWH), the Center for Health Design and Practice Greenhealth to create HHI as a guide for hospitals to reduce energy and waste, choose safer and less toxic products, and purchase and serve healthier foods.
With these eleven sponsoring systems as anchors, the initiative will enroll at least 2,000 hospitals in 50 states and the District of Columbia over the next three years to implement sustainable operations, and will measure the impact on improved patient, worker and community health and reduced costs.
As a comprehensive, sector-wide initiative, HHI is fully consistent with and builds upon the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Triple Aim – Better Health, Better Care and Lower Costs, and will institute frameworks and implementation tools that can be used by every healthcare facility in the nation, for no charge.

The city of San Bernardino recently made a complete flip-flop from agreeing to draft an ordinance allowing medical marijuana collectives to operate to a full-blown assault on the handful of medical marijuana collectives now in operation. The only problem was that the decision to do this was made in closed session which violated the open meeting provisions of the Brown Act. The shows second guest is attorney James De Aguilera who has filed a lawsuit against the city alledging violations of the Brown Act. Mr. Aguilera will explain the basis of the lawsuit and just what he think really went on behind those closed doors.
Oregon's Prop. 91 will legalize marijuana way better than Washington, their sister state to the North. Allowing for personal growing and retail sales, passage looks probable, but there are still concerns. Brad Reed from New Approaches Oregon is the second featured guest on the show. He will be discussing what Oregon's initiative does to legalize marijuana, how the polling is shaping up, what they are doing to get the vote and how the recent $500,000 contribution by George Soros will be put to use.

Brought to you live from University of Redlands and the debate between Democrat Pete Aguilar and Republican Paul Chabot for the 31st California Congressional District. Aguilar has been endorsed by the Marijuana Policy Project - Chabot earns his living as a professional drug warrior.
This is an epic battle between a progressive Democrat and a right wing Republican in a seat that is being hotly contested by both parties. The debate starts at 7 p.m. but we will interview people coming to the debate.
In addition to live interviews with debate attendees, guests for the show include Jason Elassner from Yucca Valley and the initiative that is now being circulated in this small desert town to rescind the current ban on medical marijuana dispensaries and put in place an ordinance that will license and regulate a limited number. With an election for city council going on right now, the initiative has become a focal point in the election. It's not exactly tearing the town apart, but there are strong opinions on both sides.

Join Brotha Hest Aden along with Brotah Manu Lewis and other special guest tonight for a special discussion on the Love that is required for us to "Take Initiative" and act on the needs of our Lives, Family, Community, and System!
God = Love, and is expressed in ways of healthy and life giving bonding. It is too much selfishness clouding the judgment of some really good people...in my humble opinion.
We can do better. Let us come to the table an dialogue Family.
Why are we so selfish?
Why is it so hard to be selfless?
What will it take for us to see the beauty in "Taking Initiative"?
How can stepping up be made easier for those who are afraid of the responsibility for laying down the way for the people?
And are we ever going to take the "call to action serious"...and use the purest Love that we know to remain focused upon this road of Continued Healing & Organizational Structuring???
...in Love & Service
