The following is a listing of events that might be of interest to those in Public Health.
This year, the Maine Indoor Air Quality Council is pleased to be co-sponsoring its annual Energy Efficiency & IAQ seminar with the Maine Association of Building Efficiency Professionals. The program focuses on the concept of “the pretty good house.” While achieving high performing, healthy buildings is everyone’s goal, sometimes compromises must be made to achieve that goal. This program will provide practical, real-world strategies for raising the bar on energy efficiency practices here in Maine through a careful balance of energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and cost.
Because of the similarity in construction type, the program will appeal to professionals working in both residential and light commercial properties.
This informative workshop will focus on providing attendees with skills and knowledge to respond effectively to daily stressors, demands and the uncertainties of life by becoming more resilient. David Lee, our workshop leader, is a nationally recognized expert in the field of resiliency, will draw on leading edge research and time-tested strategies to increase ones capacity to develop the adaptability and vitality to face such major life changes, such as health challenges, career transitions, job loss, or the end of a relationship.
