The worksite and the home can present health related concerns requiring special attention. The choices that we make in the way buildings are designed, constructed, furnished, and maintained can affect occupant health. Through interactive panel discussions we will explore health concerns with the built environment and potential solutions to clarify areas of focus and develop ideas for further research initiatives and collaborations among practitioners. Join us for an exciting day to raise awareness and help frame an agenda for healthier buildings, communities, and people. We look forward to an exciting and informative day together; we hope you will join us!
