Healthy Communities Task Force Indoor Air Quality Meeting Series: Housing Quality and Health

Join the HCTF for our first of three webinars on indoor air quality and health. The first webinar in the series will focus on residential indoor air quality, exploring how our homes – from building materials to home maintenance to pests – affect indoor air quality and our health.
In this meeting, Dr. Tyra Bryant-Stephens, MD, Medical Director of the Community Asthma Prevention Program (CAPP) and Chief Health Equity Officer of the Center for Health Equity at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, will present on her work to support children with Asthma in Philadelphia and beyond. She’ll discuss the services that CAPP community health workers provide to local families to mitigate asthma triggers in the home environment, with the goal of improving asthma-related outcomes in children. Brandon Alcorn, Director of Operations with Rebuilding Together Philadelphia, will also join us to discuss the CAPP+Home Repairs Program program, a partnership between CHOP and Rebuilding Together Philadelphia that works with the families of children in West and Southwest Philadelphia who are experiencing asthma to provide structural home repairs that will eliminate root causes of asthma triggers including roof repairs, wall repairs, plumbing repairs and pest extrusion procedures.
