The National Institutes of Health’s Division of Environmental
Protection and the American College of Sports Medicine have
partnered with the Health in Buildings Roundtable (HiBR) to
present a one-day conference:
Making the HumanHealth Connection:Healthy Buildings, Healthy People, and Healthy Communities
Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Natcher Conference Center
National Institutes of Health
Bethesda, MD 20892
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!
