About this webinar

During this time of global focus on health, it is vital we expand our knowledge about the impact the environment has on our health. We will first look at health- and wellness-focused building standards, namely Fitwel and WELL. Then, you will learn how to find community-specific public health data and how to analyze it to figure out which health issues most directly impact your clients and their communities. From there, using performance and prescriptive design strategies, you will be able to create a cost-conscious health-focused strategy for planned and future construction projects.
