"Understanding the Powerful Influenece of Indoor Air on Humans"

Guest Speaker - Dr. Stephanie Taylor

Dr. Stephanie Taylor graduated from Harvard Medical School in Boston in 1984 and subsequently practiced pediatric oncology and did research in cellular growth mechanisms for several decades.

Alarmed by the high number of patients acquiring infections during their in-patient treatment, she became convinced that the hospital built-environment had a role in patient outcomes. Realizing that she knew little about the design and management of buildings and mechanical systems, she returned to school in 2005 to obtain a Master’s degree in Architecture.

Dr. Taylor now works as an international consultant and research leader in designing and operating hospitals and other commercial buildings. She investigates the interaction between human and building microbiomes, and how indoor air, surface materials and building construction affects all indoor life. Her unique approach is to use health data of building occupants to determine which aspects of the indoor environment support or harm human health. She has published in Nature, Science and other peer reviewed journals, is a Distinguished Lecturer for ASHRAE, and a regular contributor to Engineered Systems magazine.

The President’s Message

The holiday season has begun! Between now and the end of the year, I hope everyone will be able to enjoy some time off, great food, and meaningful time with family and friends. One of my favorite holidays is Thanksgiving and I’d like to take a moment to say “Thanks” to a number of people. I am extremely thankful for all of the Arkansas ASHRAE officers, Board of Governors, and Committee chairs/members for volunteering their time and energy to serve our Chapter.
