    Joseph Allen, Associate Professor of Exposure Assessment Science at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, will be joining us to discuss his insights and research on healthy buildings. Joseph believes that we have to force a collision between these two disciplines: building science and health science. The indoor built environment (homes, offices, schools, hospitals, airplanes, laboratories) plays a critical role in our overall health, both due to the amount of time we spend indoors (~90%) and the ability of the buildings to positively and negatively influence our exposure. The goal is to improve the health of all people, in all buildings, everywhere, every day. He proposes moving from the term Key Performance Indicators (KPI) for businesses to Health Performance Indicators (HPIs) – making health explicit in all aspects of decision-making. Now with the introduction of COVID-19 and the spread of infection within the built environment it has become paramount and brought this concept to forfront. Join us to gain valuable insight from him and your peers on this topic.
