What if indoor air quality could improve decision making? A new study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Center for Health and the Global Environment, SUNY Upstate Medical University and Syracuse University has found that improved indoor environmental quality doubled occupants cognitive function test scores. Since most people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors the implications of these findings could be highly significant. Come hear John Mandyck (United Technologies), Professor Joseph Allen (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health), and Professor Usha Satish (SUNY Upstate Medical University) speak about the design, execution, findings and implications of this important study which focused entirely on the impact of indoor environmental air quality on human health and performance.

Speakers:
Joseph G. Allen, Assistant Professor, Director of the Healthy Buildings Program, The Center for Health and the Global Environment, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
John Mandyck, Chief Sustainability Officer, United Technologies Corporation
Usha Satish, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, SUNY Upstate Medical University
