Greensboro, NC -- Training materials cost money, and not only that, but a lot of paper.
Cone Health said it took 361 trees to print the hospital's new training materials for its integrated electronic medical record system for Cone HealthLink.
But the hospital has felt the environmental burden of printing so many materials. It's now decided to use this as an opportunity to teach Guilford County Schools' students about environmental responsibility.
On Friday, Cone Health presented 400 tree seedlings to students at Southwest High and also Environmental Service Clubs from schools across the school district. The white fir and dogwood trees represent the number of pages used in the printing materials.
Virtelligence purchased the trees and donated them to Cone Health through the Arbor Day Foundation.
