For the upcoming Fourth Annual MED|Ed Facilities Conference and Expo in Boston, the USGBC Massachusetts Chapter will be sponsoring a number of sessions during the event's two days. One session is T40: For Health - How Buildings Impact the Way We Think and Feel, taught by Memo Cedeno, Erika Eitland, Piers MacNaughton, and Augusta Williams of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Buildings have a profound impact on our health and well-being given that we spend 90% of our time indoors. In this session, we will describe the research conducted by the For Health team at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. In particular, we will present findings from recent studies linking the built environment to cognitive function in commercial, academic, and residential settings. Importantly, we will discuss the design and operation solutions identified through the research to optimize buildings for health.
Tuesday, April 4th, 4:00pm
