Stephanie Pomeroy, pharmacy technician in Student Health Services, received a GreenTree Initiative Award from the University Sustainability Office.
Pomeroy, who serves as the chair for the sustainability committee in Student Health Services, has been instrumental in helping the department reduce the amount of trash it generates by 75 percent in the last year. The effort has led the pharmacy to identify other ways to conserve and reuse with the goal of going paperless within the next five years.
