► Gary Cohen: The healthcare warrior transforming a sick society
Gary Cohen is a real mensch

Today health care practitioners worldwide take the Hippocratic Oath to “First, do no harm”. In the ultimate irony, hospitals and health care centres are the biggest polluters on the planet.

As the co-founder and president of Health Care Without Harm, Gary Cohen has created an international coalition of more than 500 members in 53 countries working to transform health care worldwide, so that it reduces its environmental footprint, becomes a community anchor for sustainability and a leading advocate for environmental health and justice.

We chatted to the ex-travel writer about the industry’s moral barometer, fighting toxics and building a global movement through giving people “the heart connection and then the science… and then the way forward.”
