Health Care Without Harm


Dear Steve -

I am a member of a small group of individuals working within a larger group of people with Health Care Without Harm.

Our little group is working toward pesticide reduction -- to zero, hopefully -- in hospitals. Including in the foods they serve.

I could think of no better person to ask to join this group than you. When I suggested your name to the others, they were most anxious for me to ask you to please consider and we all hope you have the time and energy.

We meet by phone about once a month for about a one hour phone conference. We also keep in touch via email.

So far I've only found information regarding pesticide-free hospitals through the NY Attorney General's site.

I hope you feel encouraged by this project and have the time to join our activities.
