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.

I would be surprised if you hadn’t asked yourself these questions. Do you know how much we sabotage ourselves? Do you ever hear the questions you ask yourself? Like:“ There are so many things I want to do. If I do what I really want to – what happens if I fall short of my plans? Are my expectations too high? What will people think if I don’t do the things I said I was going to do”?
Is it time to step out of you not knowing what you can do to live healthier!

Today's topic is "Dryuary" "What is Dryuary"? My special guest is Dr. Marc Kern, Ph.D Dr. Kern will speak about the Dryuary challange and give more details about it. Dr. Marc Kern, Ph.D., and he is the Co-Founder of Alternatives Treatment Center, Chairman of the Board of Moderation Management, and the creator of Dryuary. The Dryuary Challenge is an opportunity for individuals to come together in an online community to commit to 31 days of abstinence from alcohol, setting themselves up for a healthy start to the New Year. Staying dry in January is already a global movement with the United Kingdom in it's third year. Dryuary is bringing the concept to the United States. According to US government, drinking less alcohol is one of the most popular resolutions that Americans make each year. Drinking less is a sure way to become healthier, as alcohol increases fat around the liver, increases blood glucose level, and increases calorie intake- all of which can lead to serious health risks.The holiday season comes hand in hand with parties, work, socialization, dinners and family time, which all tend to encourage higher levels of alcohol intake. Healthy habits are often forgone during this time. Dryuary makes the abstaining month motivating and practical. Participants have the opportunity to challenge and/or sponsor friends and family, and support one another throughout the process. Participants will be able to track their progress through the website, along with the progress of thousands of others. Individuals will have a vast support system and will not go through the challenge alone. For more information about Dr. Marc Kern go to http://addictionalternatives.com/
In 2003, Maggie Jarry and Joe Donovan began a series of discussions, which led to the development of a national network of daughters and sons of parents with mental illness. In time, this network would come to be known as The Daughters and Sons Initiative. On this, our inaugural episode, Joe and Maggie are joined by Cheri Bragg Acker and Mike McCarthy. We will be discussing this Initiative; it’s history, achievements and hopes for the future. We will also explain how this new show, The Daughters & Sons Hour, will seek to support and expand on the efforts of the Initiative.

Hospitals, for the most part, are equipped with sound medical procedures to make sure your children are born safely. What a lot of them may lack is ready-made information for new parents of children born with cleft and craniofacial anomalies. Host Joe Rutland talks about this situation, which does crop up, offers a couple of ideas for solutions and references online resources for parents -- if they know ahead of time about their child's condition -- to go and gain education.
