Since the conception of modern medicine in the dark ages, the human population has grown exponentially. Ironically enough the agricultural farming techniques have not grown at such a fast rate, leaving more than a billion of our fellow humans to starve. This semester I explored the topic of hunger and some sustainable options we could use to loosen its grip on the ‘bottom billion.’ Growing up in a community that was very conscious of our environmental impact, I find myself drawn to talk about the environmental problems we are currently facing. This interest lead me to open the Despommier article called, ‘The Rise of Vertical Farming.’ but the writers appeal to my emotions kept me reading.

This in turn affects a health care administrator’s job, because it would be their duty to make tough decisions surrounding the health insurance situation and have resolutions that abide by the company policies while also making employees happy.
