In her book Principles of Green Bioethics: Sustainability in Health Care (Michigan State University Press, 2019), author Cristina Richie lays out a framework for evaluating the sustainability of medical developments, techniques, and procedures. She calls for a joining of biomedical ethics with environmental ethics so the resulting bioethics are conservation-based and will reduce resource consumption in health care and lessen climate change-related health hazards. Richie is an alumna of Boston College’s School of Theology and Ministry where she graduated with a master of theology. She went on to earn a doctorate in theological ethics from BC. Richie is an assistant professor in the Department of Bioethics and Interdisciplinary Studies at East Carolina University’s Brody School of Medicine, with an adjunct appointment in the Department of Public Health.
