Health Improvement Program

This is a 3 session class.

Climate disruption, one of the foremost challenges of our time, has many implications for both our personal health and the health of our planet.

Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), the primary cause, has increased to levels never observed before. With US withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, many more are asking what they can do to have an impact on climate change. Fortunately, we can take action with a variety of approaches to safeguard the planet, lower our carbon footprints, and in the process save money, increase community, and improve health.

This fun class is comprised of 3 sessions, designed to turn good environmental intentions into action. The course takes much guesswork out of which actions have greatest impact, providing a roadmap for where to spend precious time.

Participants will be introduced to skills such as how to “green" transportation at their own pace, save energy at home, recycle better, green finances, make dietary changes, impact policy, and more. Instructors will combine their expertise from over two decades of professional work on the issue, with behavioral science and group support, to help participants make a difference.

Instructors: Steve Attinger, MBA, CGBP, Environmental Sustainability Manager, City of Mountain View, and Jane Rosten MSW, LCSW, Manager of Stanford HIP’s Environmental Behavior Change Program.

Class Fee: $200.00 (Stanford employees: class is STAP approved/ BeWell Berry-eligible; and is also approved for the new Cardinal Green financial incentive, details here: Cardinal Green Non-Stanford community is also welcome! Note: partial scholarships for Non-Stanford participants available if fee is a barrier; please contact us at email or phone below if interested.)
