The North Star - Occupant Health Guides Indoor Air Quality
Join Dr. Stephanie Taylor, CEO and Founder of Building4Health, Inc., USA, for an enlightening session on "Filtration's Impact on the Future of our Planet" scheduled for December 6, 2023. In this session, Dr. Taylor will introduce an innovative platform designed to measure, analyze, and visualize the real-time health impact of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). By offering a dual visualization of the health impact of both indoor and outdoor conditions, this initiative aims to bridge the gap between medicine and the built environment, enabling IAQ management to genuinely support human health
Dr. Taylor received her MD from Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts and subsequently practiced pediatric oncology while researching cellular growth control mechanisms for the next several decades. While taking care of hospitalized patients, she became increasingly convinced that the healthcare facility played a significant role in patient healing and in the healthcare-associated infections that far too many patients acquired during their in-patient treatment. Determined to gain a better understanding of the impact of the built environment on patient healing, she returned to school and obtained her Master's Degree in Architecture. With new insights from her education, she delved into research on the relationship between indoor environments and clinical outcomes of hospitalized patients. Her research revealed new findings on the powerful role of indoor air quality in driving acute infections, chronic inflammation, cognitive impairment, and a multitude of other diseases. Not surprisingly, she found that the conditions that influence patient outcomes also contribute to health or disease in occupants of all building types.
In 2019 Dr. Taylor founded Building4Health, Inc. to scale the powerful yet underutilized approach of managing IAQ from a medical perspective to truly support occupant health. To communicate the fascinating convergence of human health, microbiology and architecture, Dr. Taylor writes monthly columns and bi-annual feature articles for Engineered Systems Magazine and publishes in other healthcare journals. She is an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer and is on the Environmental Health Committee. She is on WFI Advisory Board and also a member of the US Green Building Council technical advisory board on Indoor Air Quality.
