SITE CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION
HSC’s mission is to create solutions for a healthier community. When you think of what a community needs to be healthy, what comes to mind? Clean air and water, unprocessed and fresh food, and a shelter free of toxic materials are most likely at the top of your list. It’s clear that the health of communities depends on the health of the environment in which that community lives. HSC Sustainability’s vision is to transform our students and employees into people with a sustainability mindset in which we recognize that a healthy community depends on a healthy planet.
Below we’ve summarized several topics as they highlight the relationship between sustainability and human health. Since the term “sustainability” is defined many different ways, see how HSC Sustainability defines it here.
