The Impact of Green Buildings on Cognitive Function
December 19, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 amFree – $50.00
Join USGBC MA’s Health and Wellness Roundtable on December 19th to discuss issues related to healthy buildings with industry peers and special guest Dr. Joseph Allen, the Director of the Healthy Buildings Program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Dr. Allen’s research reveals how air, temperature, lighting and noise affect our health. The results of his work, such as the Cogfx studies, have been instrumental in the design and construction industry.
Please join us for a morning discussion with Dr. Allen to hear about the three Cogfx studies and how his research has advanced the healthy building movement! Learn about Dr. Allen’s vision to make health an explicit factor in decision-making processes. Let’s discuss ways in which industry and practice can benefit and support academic research to advance the cause of the healthy building movement. Coffee and light breakfast fare will be provided
This event will take place at the office of Bruner/Cott Architects. It is free to USGBC MA members and $50.00 to non-members. To purchase tickets, click here.
