Program Overview

The dangers of indoor air pollution continue to make headlines. Yet, does the average builder or homeowner really care if the house is well ventilated? COVID-19, mold, phthalates, VOC’s, radon, and more: are the dangers real and is there enough evidence that should move the average person to action before illness arrives? I think there is and this presentation will try to persuade you to action. But what action and how much will it cost if I do, or if I don’t take action. Come and see.

Learning Goals:

  • Pollutants of concern.

  • Consequences of exposure

  • Can changes make a difference?

  • Adding years to your life

  • Strategies to reduce dangers
