Healthy Indoors Show 11-19-20: Dr. Delphine Farmer

Indoor air is a complex soup of molecules that is constantly changing, not only because of new sources (cooking, cleaning, personal care products), but also because of chemical reactions taking place on material surfaces and in the air. We will be discussing results from the House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry (HOMEChem) – and what they tell us about indoor air quality–just in time for your Thanksgiving dinner cooking sprees!

Dr. Delphine Farmer is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. She received her BS in Chemistry at McGill University, a MS in Environmental Science, Policy and Management from UC Berkeley, and her PhD in Chemistry from UC Berkeley. While her interests have mainly focused on the outdoor atmosphere and how forests interact with air pollution, she has recently dived into the world of indoor air. She is a co-leader of the HOMEChem study and the forthcoming CASA (Chemical Assessment of Surfaces and Air) Study, which is focused on the interactions between indoor and outdoor air pollution.

ADAO President’s Statement on The U.S. House of Representatives’ Decision to Remove the Alan Reinstein Ban Asbestos Now Act (ARBAN) from the Suspension Calendar Without Vote 

Show Summary by Linda Reinstein

Last week I had the honor and opportunity to join Bob Krell’s Healthy Indoors Show with Joe Medosch (Howard Score) and Brent Kynoch (Environmental Information Association). The discussion topic was “Asbestos: Are We Doing Enough to Combat This Environmental Hazard?”, which opened many areas of discussion regarding prevention and policy.  

Each year, nearly 40,000 Americans die from preventable asbestos-caused diseases, yet imports and use continue. Bob, Brent, and Joe, know all too well from their decades of experience that it is time to ban asbestos and mitigate/prevent legacy asbestos exposure.

During the conversation I was able to share several points of ADAO’s core work which include:

Healthy Indoors Magazine is led by a team of innovative professionals from the indoor environmental and publishing industries, who bring decades of combined experience and insight to the publication. As the only publication dedicated to indoor air quality and sustainability issues, Healthy Indoors has quickly become a leading source for the latest on research, best practices, new products, and legal matters – information necessary to keep their readers up-to-date in this ever-changing market.

Bob is a great supporter of ADAO’s education and prevention efforts.

In fact, in March 2019 he published a piece I wrote “Healthy Indoors: 10 Ways to Keep Safe from Asbestos” 

Special thanks to Bob for giving ADAO the opportunity to present this week
