Featured Session: Public Health - Tech is Coming for You

Mar 15, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

The COVID-19 pandemic illuminated how a century of complacency had left us with antiquated indoor health security measures — ones that were expensive, inequitable, unsustainable, and ripe for disruption. In the average year, 40M Americans get the flu. Yet, between September 2020 and January 2021, the CDC reported a 99% reduction in cases of influenza. The preventative measures we’d taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19, nearly eradicated the flu. In this panel discussion, industry leaders in public health and sustainability will discuss how COVID-19 accelerated the technology and innovation to deliver healthier buildings - which is driving the delivery of more equitable, effective and sustainable human and planetary health.
