Asbestos, carbon monoxide, lead-based paint, pests, radon, and mold—you now that there is a connection between housing and health. Too often, as environmental health specialists, we find ourselves struggling to respond to specific problems, especially indoor air quality problems, without an overall strategy that brings together both health and housing science into an integrated system that protects the public in an efficient manner. The healthy homes movement provides that strategy. This session will help you understand the healthy homes movement and what you can do to bring it to your community.
