How It Works

My Green Doctor is a self-administered study program intended to help all types of doctor offices to save money and lower their environmental impacts. The program is provided as a free  public service of the Council for Healthy Floridians of the Florida Medical Association (FMA), in Tallahassee, Florida, USA.      

My Green Doctor  is voluntary, easy to use and understand, comprehensive, and systematic. An office of any size can use it, providing real value to you, your business, your patients, and your community.
