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.

You enter the dark and dingy dungeon. You are armed with naught but your shining sword and your cunning wit. In the distance, you see the damsel in distress calling out to you from where she has been imprisoned. All that stands between you and victory is the towering ogre staring you down, drooling and looking at you as his next meal. What do you do? Roll Initiative!
Join the GCR crew this week as we focus in on Table-Top Role-Playing Games. We'll talk about some of our old favorites as well as talk about some of the new game systems that are coming out. We'll also welcome back Job Rock to our show from his hiatus. Of course, no episode would be complete without an Impromptu Game Review from Scott. Buckle up and prime your dice, this is one show you'll not want to miss!
Butane legality and Butte Co. cultivation controversy are the focus of the 6 p.m. Monday, August 18 live podcast of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense at blogtalkradio.com/marijuananews.
The use of butane in the production of marijuana concentrates is highly controversial. What is legal and what is not legal on both state and federal levels will be examined by famed marijuana attorneys Allison Margolin and Raza Lawrence. With home explosions making the headlines, fears of butane residuals in concentrates and the rapid growth of shatters and waxes especially among youthful consumers, the topic couldn’t be hotter.
In 2013, Butte Co. passed a very restrictive cultivation ordinance banning outdoor grows on lots of less than ½ acre and severely restricted cultivation on larger parcels. Patients rallied and collected enough signatures to place an initiative on the ballot to repeal the restrictive ordinance and replace it with one that is more patient friendly. Andrew Merkel of Butte County Citizens Against Irresponsible Government will speak on how patients succeeded in collecting enough signatures and the heightened tensions that have developed in Butte Co as a result of their success in putting the measure on the ballot.
With news, views, humor and grow tips, this is the marijuana show worth listening to this Monday August 18 at 6 p.m. and every Monday at 6 p.m. at www.blogtalkradio.com/marijuananews. Be a part of the live podcast by calling in your comments and questions to (657) 383-0011.

LIFELINE with Cindy Sommer is all about EMPOWERMENT. Empower your heart. Empower your mind. Empower your life.
TONIGHT'S SHOW: Help us start the most important conversation we may ever have as Cindy Sommer welcomes Troy Johnson, LCSW, Founder and Director of The Senior Pride Initiative based in Lexington, KY.
Troy Johnson is a Licensed Master Social Worker, and works as a mental health therapist in the south. Troy's dedication to helping others improve their place in life extends from direct practice to broad advocacy. Troy’s dedication to helping others live with purpose and dignity is a central motivator in his work with the Senior Pride Initiative (SPI). SPI is a natural extension of his history of success in expanding advocacy services based on an ever growing and changing demographic of the aging population. This includes collaborating with the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging to provide cultural competency training to the Nursing Home Ombudsman staff in Lexington, KY, and working in partnership with local aging service providers to host Kentucky’s first conference dedicated to LGBTQ aging in 2013.
Troy is the former Director of Programs and Services for the Nursing Home Ombudsman Agency, and recent Chair of the Bluegrass Elder Abuse Prevention Council. He holds professional memberships in the National Association of Social Workers and the American Society on Aging, and is a sought after speaker on topics related to LGBTQ seniors, elder abuse, and program development.
Putting an initiative on the ballot can be dangerous to your freedom as a number of collective operators have found out in Santa Ana. In a series of raids, 42 people were arrested over a 2-day period for operating store-front collectives that violate the city’s ban.
Patients collected enough signature for an initiative that would rescind the ban and allow for a limited number of licensed collectives. The city responded with its own initiative that is much more restrictive allowing operation in only two industrial zones. The city then allocated an additional $500,000 for police operations to close dispensaries.
Hearings have been contentious with a group called Latino Health Access strenuously opposing the collectives at city council meetings. Kandice Hawes, one of the petition organizers and a member of OCNORML, will review what has happened, take a jaundice view of the city’s actions and explain their plan to overcome local opposition to get the patient’s initiative passed.
The second part of the show will feature a live session from Sacramento with patients who participated in ASAs Citizen Lobby Day. Hear about the “touchy” morning session on SB 1262 with bill author Sen. Lou Correa as well as first-hand accounts of their visits to the offices of their state assembly member and state senator.

The economics and rules of eating well. Join us as we Get Real and 'cut through the fat' of how to really eat well. Many people feel like they can't afford to eat well. Simply put - junk food can appear cheaper - but you eat a whole lot more of it. Which puts people in the catagory of being overfed and undernourished. In the long run, eating well and eating for health pays off in better health and lower doctor visits. We'll help you look at different ways you can eat better without breaking the bank and actually enjoy it.
Our family went from the sick care life style and industry to our Wellness Lifestyle. Our passion is to help you Get Real and bridge the gap to a joy-filled passionate life with good health and vitality.

"With self-compassion the most important step is to notice your own suffering." - Dr. Kristin Neff
Dr. Kristin Neff joins Sister Jenna to discuss the power of self-compassion.
Kristin Neff, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. During her last year of graduate school, she became interested in Buddhism, and has been practicing meditation in the Insight Meditation tradition ever since. While doing her post-doctoral work she conducted research on self-compassion – a central construct in Buddhist psychology and one that had not yet been examined empirically.
In addition to her pioneering research into self-compassion, Kristen has developed an 8-week program to teach self-compassion skills. The program, co-created with her colleague Chris Germer at Harvard University, is called Mindful Self-Compassion. She is the author of a book titled, "Self-Compassion" and has produced a 6-CD Audio Set on "Self-Compassion Step by Step."
Kristen and her family were also featured in the best-selling book and award-winning documentary called "The Horse Boy." Visit her website at www.self-compassion.org
