The Green Doctor Office Recognition certificate is awarded to offices that demonstrate meaningful improvements in their environmental practices. This is a handsome certificate for you to print several copies of to frame and display in your office, clinic or outpatient center.
The minimum requirements for Recognition are:
- Completion of five Green Team meetings
- Completion of five Action Steps
- Completion of five Education Steps
We suggest that you print out the Green Team Notes form to keep track of your meetings. Detailed records are not needed; just a few words that will help your Team keep tracks of your projects and progress.
Educations Steps: We provide dozens of suggestions, found in the Meeting-By-Meeting Guide, and in our seven free Workbooks. Examples: inform staff members on a topic at a staff meeting, print out some our free brochures (see the Resources tab) to give to patients in the waiting room, or pick a daily theme (see “Tip of the Week” in the Resources tab) that can be mentioned by your office colleagues to patients visiting the practice. We offer dozens of themes, such as reminders to exercise, tips on safe pharmaceuticals disposal, and advice on being prepared for extreme heat events, flooding or storms.
The Green Doctor Office Recognition certificate is free if one of your office members is a member of one of our partnering health professional organizations. For non-members, recognition is $250 (US), valid for three years. Please contact My Green Doctor’s editor to learn how your organization can become a partner at no charge (firstname.lastname@example.org).
