Building Design and Health

Delaware Valley Green Building Council (DVGBC) works to improve quality of life in our region through green building education and advocacy. The health and safety of the built environment, and the impact that place has on health, have emerged as key themes in DVGBC’s work, and we are excited to partner with Jefferson to host a half-day summit on the design, operation, and measurement of healthy, sustainable buildings. The summit will feature a keynote presentation on the emergence of new measurement technologies to evaluate occupant health and well-being in buildings, followed by a panel presentation and discussion on integrating design and medicine disciplines in higher education to promote better health outcomes. Dr. Chris Pyke, Chief Strategy Officer at Aclima will lead the day as our keynote, followed by panelists Shawn Fisher Hesse, Community Engagement Manager at International Living Future Institute, and Dr. Kihong Robert Ku, Associate Professor of Architecture at Jefferson University. Lisa Conway, Vice President of Sustainability at Americas at Interface will be moderating the panel. Do not miss your opportunity to hear from these leading individuals! There will also be a post-summit roundtable from 1 - 2:30 pm, led by keynote speaker, Dr. Chris Pyke. Note that registration for the roundtable is separate. Breakfast and coffee will be provided. Event is worth 3 GBCI CE hours and AIA LU-HSWs. Tickets and Sponsorship Event Cost: Sliding Scale Fee DVGBC is providing a sliding scale fee to help make the event accessible for all interested.
