 #2 April ASHRAE Webinar - Buildings are Our Best Medicine

"An excellant ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, presenting updates on a current topic, by an exceptionally credentialed presenter - you do not want to miss this."

We are currently living with uncertainty brought about by a mutated virus of the familiar Coronavirus family. Many unanswered questions about COVID-19 disease transmission, mortality rates and our own immune response have resulted in fear, confusion and a sense of helplessness in many of us. Thankfully, we have a solid foundation of scientific data from studies in microbiology, medicine and the indoor environment that can guide our management of buildings so that they are true shelters. 

We will present studies on building interventions that optimize the health of human occupants and decrease the threat of microbial pathogens such as COVID-19. Communication between medical and building professionals, such as in this webinar, along with your input will help us fight back and regain our footing. Attend this webinar to learn about the power of the indoor environment to keep us safe and healthy during COVID-19 and beyond.
