Created in 2018, the HiBR Scholars Program strives to foster future generations by recognizing each scholar’s accomplishments and potential with an emphasis on connecting scholars to each other, to mentors, and to potential career development resources. The poster sessions provide a forum to further explore the conference topics. Areas of focus include data resources and metrics for how the built environment impacts health; sustainable building design, operation, and technologies to improve health outcomes; and identifying potential research questions that remain unanswered. The goal is to bring forward knowledge of best practices and tangible results in the area of health and sustainable buildings.
Limited travel support to the program was made available through a grant from National Science Foundation (NSF) Environmental Sustainability Program. Conference organizers thank NSF for its generosity and support.
