LifeAire Systems, manufacturer of advanced air purification technologies for the healthcare industry, today announced that CEO & Founder, Dr. Kathryn C. Worrilow, has been selected to join the IWBI Health Equity Advisory—a global network of industry experts assembled by the International Well Building Institute (IWBI) with the goal of advancing health equity worldwide.
First announced in January 2020, the IWBI Health Equity Advisory’s vision is for everyone to have a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible. The Advisory will work to identify, codify and scale strategies that can be used by buildings, businesses and communities around the world to help achieve this vision.
As part of the Advisory, Dr. Worrilow joins a global network who will focus on advancing people-first places, identifying effective tools, and fortifying the WELL Building Standard (WELL) through evidence-based, third-party verified strategies that address health inequities in buildings, businesses, and communities around the world. In particular, members will help identify opportunities to make places that prioritize health and well-being available and accessible to all individuals, no matter their identity, location, background, or level of ability.
“It is an honor to be selected to join this global advisory panel,” said Dr. Kathryn C. Worrilow. “As we have all struggled through the pandemic over the last year, we have been reminded just how sensitive and vulnerable we are as a global community. It is essential that we find solutions to provide the best possible healthcare to everyone, regardless of where they live. The vision of the IWBI Health Equity Advisory echoes the vision of LifeAire—to provide the highest quality healthcare environments possible for the benefit of patients and the front-line workers who treat them. I look forward to collaborating with the network and advancing this very important cause.”
The Advisory represents thought leaders and authorities across the fields of architecture and interior design, public health and building science, government and academia.
