Indoor Air Conference Press Release

Announcing a Critical Health Breakthrough affecting all Americans

Orlando, Florida, Caribe Royale Orlando, May 31 – June 2, 2018
This is a game changer–NAMM (National Association for Moisture Management) is hosting a conference on the serious Economic and Health Impact from Indoor Air Pollution.

Internationally known experts from across several industries are coming together to share how NAMM, and its strategic partners, have cracked the code on the actual cause of many serious and chronic medical conditions, proper diagnosis and treatment for people afflicted by health issues due to exposure to polluted indoor air.

“In 2009, the US Surgeon General, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) jointly put out the call for a solution to the indoor air quality crisis in America. Unfortunately the economic and health impact has increased every year since then and nothing has changed until now,” says Rick LaPierre, President and Founder of the National Association for Moisture Management (NAMM).

The American Medical Association reports that “one-third of the annual U.S. Healthcare spending is directly attributable to indoor air pollution.” Forbes Magazine in 2014, reported “Annual U.S. Healthcare Spending Hits $3.8 Trillion,” which means almost $1.3 Trillion can be linked to healthcare spending due to indoor air pollution. In addition according to Forbes another $227 Billion is due to loss of productivity on the job and over $200 Billion according to the Insurance Industry from Mold/Water Restoration making this issue well over $1.7 Trillion.

Currently thousands of patients visit doctors every year and are misdiagnosed because few doctors are aware of the serious impact indoor air pollution is having on people’s health.​ Until now, physicians did not have the tools needed to detect, diagnose and treat this condition, leaving patients unwell and exposed to further infection from sick indoor air quality in homes, schools and workspaces.

The financial and health impact from indoor air pollution is creating an epidemic​ ​that​ ​can affect​ ​all demographics.​ ​​ ​From​ ​colds​ ​to​ ​cancer,​ ​the air​ ​we​ ​breathe​ ​has a direct effect on our health condition.

Industry experts from the medical, property and casualty insurance, construction, indoor air quality, heating and air conditioning, real estate and facilities management industries will be attending the conference. They will learn about these latest-scientific breakthroughs and how to implement strategies, through a multidisciplinary approach, which includes actionable and sustainable solutions to develop real prevention, detection and treatment techniques.

In addition attendees will learn the tools, and develop the ability; to enhance their practices and businesses and address the causes behind indoor air related illness and pollution. They will learn to accurately assess and support the healing process for patients while improving air quality in buildings thus reducing the negative financial and health impact from Indoor Air Pollution.

Professionals in these fields hold the key to health and wellness for millions and have the opportunity to create breakthrough solutions with life-saving impact for countless afflicted patients.

Featured Speakers include internationally known experts: Andrew W. Campbell M.D., Dr. Harriet Burge PhD, Chris Casey CEO Monroe Infrared, and Allen Johnston CEO Green Tech Environmental.
