Free Training: Launching a Healthy Homes Initiative

September 15
8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Portsmouth Department of Social Services and Public Health Building
1701 High Street
Portsmouth, VA 23704

 Taught by the Healthy Homes Training Center and Network and sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Health and The Consortium for Infant and Child Health (CINCH) at Eastern Virginia Medical School, this course brings together health and housing professionals from state and local agencies, as well as other health and housing organizations, to identify policies and practices to establish robust programs to make homes healthier. Participants will work with a case study developed for the training to analyze threats to resident health and identify opportunities to reduce those threats through improved and coordinated housing and health services.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize seven healthy homes principles
  • Explain the connection of those principles to health impacts and hazards in the home
  • Identify the organizations and programs that can make a home healthier
  • Describe the basic tools agencies and organizations can use to make homes healthier
  • Name five action steps that can be implemented in the next six months to launch a healthy homes program
