News in brief: Medical students go green

Residency Program Insider, August 29, 2008

It’s no secret that green is the new black. Many facilities use receptacles for recycling day-to-day items such as soda cans and newspapers. A group of medical students at RushUniversityMedicalCenter are taking recycling to the next level. Along with other members of the hospital staff, they started Rush Remedy, a medical supply recycling program. According to a Rush University Medical Center press release, volunteers gather unused medical supplies and equipment, including surgical packs, surgical gloves, gauze, bandages, sutures, and catheters, and send them to MedShare International, an organization that ships supplies to overseas clinics and hospitals.
