Learn to make your ophthalmic practice more environmentally sustainable through My Green Doctor, a free program for Academy and American Academy of Ophthalmic Executives® (AAOE®) members.
The program provides a systemic approach that is energy friendly and saves money.
Participating practices make gradual improvements in the use of energy, water, chemicals, paper and other resources.
Most offices, making My Green Doctor a five-minute topic at a monthly staff meeting, save money in their first month. One practice is saving more than $1,200 a doctor every year and reducing its greenhouse gases with no financial investment.
Begin by registering at MyGreenDoctor.org. Everyone in the office can register as Partner Society members and use the discount code MGDAAO to save $60 instantly and make My Green Doctor free forever to the entire practice.
Next, watch the “Three Minute Video” on the homepage to learn how to get started.
Your office will receive a free pledge certificate for registering and a Green Doctor Office Certificate from the Academy when you qualify after a few months. The certificates show patients and colleagues the good work you’re doing.
My Green Doctor provides free brochures, posters and other teaching tools to help share wise choices with patients and help protect families from the health threats of climate change. This can mean less energy and water used, cleaner air, fewer greenhouse gases and better health outcomes.
Use this Academy and AAOE membership benefit by registering today at My Green Doctor to start saving money and creating healthier communities.
