Earth Week 2022 and Keck School Sustainability

During Earth Week (April 18-22), and always, the Keck School of Medicine of USC strives to make health care as sustainable as possible. Through research, improving practices and awareness of the role medicine plays in contributing to and ameliorating environmental harm, we acknowledge that it takes a healthy planet to produce healthy people.
