Join USGBC Greater Virginia on Tuesday, Jan. 10 in Charlottesville for a one-hour seminar by Dr. Matthew Trowbridge, Associate Professor in the University of Virginia School (UVA) of Medicine's Department of Emergency Medicine and Director of the UVA-USGBC Green Health Partnership.

Trowbridge will discuss his work to simulate application of an integrative process to advance public health and well-being outcomes in the context of building design and construction.

The Green Health Partnership seeks to answer the question: how might we establish a culture of health by creating healthy places together?

By applying green building principles of market transformation to promote healthy places, the partnership looks to better define the value proposition for health promotion within the built environment, develop tools for building and public health practitioners to create healthy places, and build technical capacity to apply health promotion tools.
