Dr. John McKeon , CEO of Allergy Standards, and the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program team are delighted to be involved in the 2021 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo and its Global Health & Wellness Summit.
First off, John will serve as a keynote speaker on the first day of the Global Health & Wellness Summit on September 9th at 11:00 a.m. The session is entitled “Prioritizing healthy indoor air quality in the design, building and use of our homes” and will explore the factors that influence indoor air quality (IAQ), such as building materials, ventilation, humidity and occupant activities. At a time more critical than ever, the impact of poor IAQ on health will be examined, focusing how pollution can exacerbate respiratory disorders. The discussion will cover the subject of healthier materials & measures for building projects, and how these can ultimately support the integration of healthy IAQ strategies into the design of a building.
Then, The Certification Program will be exhibiting virtually as a main feature at the Greenbuild 2021 International Conference & Expo, September 21-23. Attendees are encouraged to visit the interactive digital booth to engage with and learn more about the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program and find out more about the Program’s partnership between Allergy Standards Limited (ASL) and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. This will be a wonderful opportunity for attendees to meet some of the team including Elisabeth Yazdzik, US Business Development Manager, and Laura Dulligan, Customer Success Manager for the Certification Program who will be available for Q&A. Dr. John Ryan from the ASL science team will also be on standby to respond to technical enquiries.
