The Healthcare Environmental Awareness and Resource Reduction Team Midwest (HEARRT Midwest) is sponsoring a webinar on the proposed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) pharmaceutical waste rules. The recently proposed rules will potentially affect pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, nursing care facilities and pharmaceutical reverse distributors, as well as others.
Kristin Fitzgerald and Josh Smeraldi of EPA will provide a regulatory overview. Josh Burman from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency will also participate. The event is designed to review the proposed regulations, provide a question and answer session and offer networking opportunities for professionals working on health care sustainability and waste issues.
