An ounce of prevention…

Each month we publish a newsletter titled IAQ Website of the Month. The excerpt below was originally published in the August 2010 newsletter.

Have you ever asked a doctor about an indoor air quality problem? Let’s just say their knowledge is typically lacking. However, some interesting initiatives are educating healthcare providers and public health professionals on the importance of IAQ.

The American College of Preventive Medicine launched an entire website dedicated to Indoor Air Quality thanks to a grant from the EPA’s Indoor Environments Division. The site allows users to view a few free webcasts. I would recommend the following:
Reducing the Risk: Detecting and Preventing Exposure to Radon and Mold
Managing Indoor Asthma Triggers: Realistic Approaches for Health Care Providers
There are also a few good downloads on the website. I would recommend the following:
Indoor Asthma Triggers (27 page PDF)
Indoor Mold (30 page PDF)
After you are done checking the website out, be sure to share it with your health care providers!
