Co-hosted by Doctors for the Environment Australia and the Australian Medical Association, this webinar once again brought together medical professionals and Australia’s medical colleges to facilitate the sharing of information, updating of activities and showcase the work being done in the healthcare sector to improve carbon footprints and sustainability practices.
