Earns 1 LU/HSW | free

Good design supports health and well-being for building occupants and the surrounding community. This educational session features healthy building expert Dr. Joseph Allen, who will share his team’s work on the 9 Foundations of a Healthy Building, and how they affect all levels of educational facilities and the students, teachers and community members who inhabit them.

The 9 Foundations of a Healthy Building is a holistic, evidence-based approach to understanding how buildings affect the people inside them, created by a multidisciplinary team of experts from the Healthy Buildings Program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
