Tools for Healthier Homes

This Live Event happened on December 11, 2019 (2:00pm - 3:00pm EST)


While health has always been a part of sustainability, exciting new data (and some scary findings) are driving rapid change to a health-motivated perspective in the green buildings industry. Most building scientists and green building consultants are not public health experts, but a variety of tools exist in the marketplace that can help translate building strategies into positive health outcomes.

Session is designed to empower people who ‘only speak buildings’ to start ‘speaking human health’ today, using the best parts of tools available.
