Healthy Buildings and Healthy Homes: Could Indoor Spaces Be Making You Sick?
November 13 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American spends approximately 90% of their life indoors. Accordingly, the physical structures in which we work and live—our homes, schools, offices, public buildings—directly impact health outcomes. By improving the performance of buildings, in both design and construction, our health and well-being benefit greatly, while also reducing health care costs. Expanding on the progress established by the green building industry, the next stage is to advance the complementary practice of healthy building and wellness. This panel brings together leading experts in the fields of healthy buildings and wellness for an informative and timely discussion regarding human health and its direct correlation to the built environment, and the tools and technologies that deliver healthier indoor environments in which we can flourish.
