    Green Buildings and Health: From the Lab to the Real World

    Wednesday, December 14, 2016 | 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and SUNY Upstate Medical University present the results of a new study showing that employees in high-performing, green-certified buildings had higher cognitive function test scores than those in similarly high-performing buildings that were not green certified, even after controlling for other potential explanatory factors.
