Webinar: Protecting Homes During Extreme Weather—Thermal Control
The National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) along with the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) present our second webinar in a series about protecting homes and health during extreme weather events.
Presenters will discuss extreme heat and extreme cold and their impact on homes and health. Dr. Natasha DeJarnett, Assistant Professor of Environmental Medicine at the Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute of University of Louisville, will serve as moderator and also discuss how extreme heat is linked to increased cardiovascular disease risk. Mindy O'Neall, Executive Director of the Cold Climate Housing Research Center, will discuss the work being done in Alaska to protect the home environment through energy efficient and healthy building technologies. We will also explore how climate change is linked to health inequities and exacerbates existing disparities for safe, healthy, and affordable housing.
This webinar series is made possible and is funded through a cooperative agreement between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and NEHA.
