The White House Honors Champions of Change
Health Care Without Harm's President and Founder, Gary Cohen, has been named a Champion of Change in the category of Climate and Health by the White House. The honor is bestowed on Cohen and others who are leaders in making the link between climate and health, and helping the health sector lead the effort to reduce their contributions to climate change and prepare their communities for the threats to health related to climate change. Two of HCWH’s close allies were also selected as Champions of Change. They are Jeff Thompson, MD, CEO of Gundersen Health System of LaCrosse, WI, and Laura Anderko, PhD, RN. The White House will held a ceremony to honor the recipients on July 9, 2013.
