This seminar will examine findings from a year-long evaluation of residents of Hillman Hall, a new on-campus building at Washington University specifically designed to be “healthy.”
Presenter Amy Eyler and her colleagues used accelerometry, observations, and surveys to study the effect of Hillman’s innovative features—including abundant stairs, standing desks, and natural lighting—on the people who regularly work there. Effective strategies for creating healthy workspaces and how to evaluate and improve your own buildings will be discussed.
SPEAKER: Amy A. Eyler,Assistant Dean for Public Health; Assistant Professor, Brown School, Washington University in St. Louis.
