Hosted By the Triangle Chapter

Please Note: This Tech Hour Presentation is Pre-recorded.  

When decarbonizing healthcare it is important to understand the unique rules and regulations that come along with it. This Tech Hour will review both the ‘why’ and ‘how’ to decarbonize healthcare, what challenges may arise, and what different entities are doing to lead the way. 

Speaker Bio:

Mr. Vernon is the Chief Executive Officer at Mazzetti Inc and has nearly 30 years of experience in the research, planning, and design of healthcare facilities. His contributions to the industry include serving as a founding member of the Built Environment Network, whose intent is to advance knowledge in the healthcare facilities network. In addition, he was one of the Co-Coordinators for the Green Guide for Health Care, served on the board of both Practice Greenhealth and Health Care Without Harm, and wrote the section on hospitals for CalGreen.
