THROUGH lead, radon, mold or other household health
risks – home environment conditions significantly impact
occupant health. Children can be disproportionately affected
by adverse environmental conditions in their home, leading to
increased asthma episodes, lead poisoning – or other negative
health impacts. Renters and lower income households often
experience higher frequency of these conditions.

Join this provocative panel to learn more about the intrinsic
link between dwelling place and individual health and well being.
See how practices, policies and persistence can pave
the way for lasting improvement.

CCI is a Pittsburgh-based 501c3 nonprofit organization
founded in 1978 that helps families create healthier homes
and get energy smarter.
