The Code 250 Medical and Environmental Management Division (MEMD) plans, organizes, and directs medical and environmental resource protection programs for the Center, Wallops Flight Facility (WFF), and Goddard's worldwide tracking facilities. The division provides multi-disciplined operations, support, and guidance in the overall protection of the Center's mission, personnel, and property. The two primary functional areas that the MEMD focuses on include:

Environmental Management

The MEMD provides regulatory and programmatic environmental management services, expert counsel, and guidance regarding environmental issues. Our team defines environmental responsibilities to minimize impact on mission costs and schedule, minimize impact of projects on the environment, and to ensure compliance with the Center's Environmental Management System's goals and objectives. We work with project managers to find creative solutions to environmental issues and problems and ensure mission success. Visit the Greenbelt or WFF environmental pages for more information on individual environmental programs.

Medical Management
The MEMD plans, organizes, and manages medical health activities including Health Unit Services, the Fitness Facility, and the Employee Assistance Program. We perform medical health-related analyses, inform employees of the latest health matters, and ensure Goddard adheres to all medical health laws, regulations, and policies to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees.
