Sustainability in the hospital: A doctor in a star interview

Health and environmental protection are closely intertwined: Patients need help in the climate crisis, clinics want to reduce waste and CO2. Doctor Alina Herrmann is researching solutions for both.

Alina Herrmann is a doctor and works as a scientist at the Heidelberg Institute for Global Health and at the Institute for General Medicine in Cologne. An unusual mixture at first glance: being interested in the really big questions of the planet AND their effects in a family doctor’s practice. That’s why I visit Alina Herrmann at her institute in Heidelberg’s Neuenheimer Feld, where I myself studied medicine many years ago.
