Our Trip to the Healthy Homes Conference

We’re thrilled to be part of the upcoming biannual Healthy Homes Conference sponsored by US Department of Housing and Urban Development from May 28 to 30. Not only do we always love to visit Nashville but we’re delighted to have the chance to share Wellness Within Your Walls with a wide variety of professionals–from designers to city planners to builders to public health experts–all working together on making homes healthier.

At WWYW, we’re all about partnering and collaborating in order to make it as easy as possible for all of us to live in healthier home and offices, so we really looking forward to being a part of an event billed as “bringing together health, housing and other professionals dedicated to improving the lives and homes of America’s families and communities.”

The six education tracks included a range of timely and essential topics –we’re most excited about Research and Evidence of Healthy Housing, Healthier by Design, and Healthy Homes Make Healthy Communities. And we really love that the conference is offering a hands on volunteering opportunity, “Building a Healthy Neighborhood,” at the conclusion of the conference.

In addition to presenting a workshop, WWYW founder Jillian Pritchard Cooke will be available at the opening reception to answer any questions. Look for the Wellness Within Your Walls posters and please stop by! She’d love to meet you and chat about WWYW.

But if you can’t make to Nashville, don’t worry. We’re going to attend as many different sessions as we possibly can and we’ll definitely be passing along any and all information that we think you need to know!
