Description

Loyola University Chicago has collaborated with the City of Chicago, Cook County Departments of Public Health, and Great Lakes Centers at the University of Illinois Chicago to host a multidisciplinary summit Advancing Healthy Homes & Healthy Communities.

Approximately 1.2 million children residing in Cook County are at risk of developing immediate and long-term health effects due to numerous indoor environmental hazards. This invitational summit will include representatives of community-based organizations; health, housing, and child advocates; public health and housing officials; representatives from realtor and insurance industries; a multidisciplinary group of University faculty from Loyola and the University of Illinois Chicago; and legal advocates. The purpose for the summit is to raise awareness about the burdens of unhealthy housing and to begin the work of developing a blueprint for the city and county to address indoor environmental toxins, especially as they relate to children. The summits morning session is free and open to the public.
