Earth Day 2019 Hackensack University Medical Center

Celebrating Earth Day 2019 with The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at Hackensack University Medical Center.

Team members and the community stopped by to meet the HUMC beekeeper, see an observation hive, taste  HackensackUMC honey and experience the Enchanted Exhibit of artwork, which brings new life to discarded healthcare packaging. 

Enchanted Exhibit by Terri Shank of Beacon Converters – a local family business.

  • Terri and her family also worked with our Child Care & Learning Center children to create their own dreamcatchers similar to those in the Enchanted Exhibit, which are also on display.
