Essentials for Healthy Home Practitioners

Dates: February 19 & 20, 2014
Time: 8:30 am- 4:30 pm
Cost: $175 (2-day course registration fee)
Place: University of Maryland 4-H Center
8020 Greenmead Drive

The training will help you understand the connection between health and housing and how to take a holistic approach to identify and resolve problems, which threaten the health and well-being of residents.
This two-day course is lively and engaging and complements hazard-specific training in lead-based paint, radon, mold, pests, and asbestos. It identifies root causes of health problems in a home and links them to seven principles of healthy housing: keep it dry; keep it clean; keep it pest-free; keep it ventilated; keep it safe, avoid contaminants; and maintain the house. Course participants will have a better understanding how to collaborate to make healthy homes a reality in their community.
