IAQ Website of the Month

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.

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:

Don’t Mess with Texas

University of Texas

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

Indoor Air is a triennial and international conference that will be held in Austin, Texas next year. The conference was in Copenhagen in 2008 and Beijing in 2005. The University of Texas will host and organize the event at the Austin Convention Center June 5-10, 2011.

To get people excited for this great event, I wanted to give you a sneak peak at the quality of technical content you can expect. Jeffrey Siegel, Ph.D. is a professor at the University of Texas and he maintains a personal website of his published articles and conference papers.

Dr. Siegel includes links to much of his published work and allows visitors to download copies.

Aspergillus, is a common genus of mold known for its practical uses (soy sauce, soft drinks) and serious effects on human health (aspergillosis).

This month’s featured website is a massive hub for all information related to Aspergillus.  The “Aspergillus Website” is owned and funded in part by the Fungal Research Trust, based in Manchester, UK.

Here are five sections of the website that I find of interest:
