The Future of Healthcare and Indoor Air Quality

The healthcare sector can play a critical role in improving the indoor environment for people with poorly controlled asthma. Recent policy wins in California and elsewhere underscore this important relationship.

But even as RAMP works to successfully implement California’s asthma home visiting policies, and support groups doing similar work in other states, there’s the question of what comes next. How can we build on initial advances across the country? How can we more effectively leverage partnerships and resources between healthcare and asthma and healthy housing stakeholders to help people most in need?

To answer these and other questions, RAMP Associate Director Joel Ervice recently interviewed Kate Hastings with the National Center for Healthy Housing. A recording of that conversation, “Building Healthy Indoor Environments with Healthcare,” takes a deep dive into health care policy focused on built environments as good health investments. Take a listen here.

We hope you’ll find this interview useful for your work.

Warm regards,
RAMP staff
