Boise, Idaho - Monday, December 07, 2009 - In an ongoing effort to improve home health, The Healthy House Institute (HHI) announces its partnership with the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA). As part of the relationship, HHI visitors will be able to access environmental health research made available by NEHA.

“Many homes new and old have unseen contaminants that can negatively affect the health of a home,” said Nelson E. Fabian, Executive Director and CEO of NEHA. “By making experts and research available through HHI, homeowners will be empowered with the resources needed to help ensure their families are not adversely impacted by poor building, home care and maintenance practices.”

As a part of the partnership, Fabian will also serve on HHI’s advisory board and provide ongoing direction on HHI’s content and resources. As the Executive Director of NEHA for more than 25 years, Fabian has achieved numerous accolades. In 2007, he was honored as “One of the Nation’s Top 15 Leaders in Environmental Health” from the Journal of Environmental Health. He is the recipient of several awards including the prestigious Walter Snyder Award given by the National Science Foundation. In addition, he has been asked to serve on a wide variety of different boards.

Under Fabian’s direction, extensive research has been conducted which will be added to the library of articles available at www.healthyhouseinstitute.com. Visitors will be able to search by category to find potential home hazards and actual studies from NEHA that highlight housing health impacts.

“Asthma, cancer and a variety of other health conditions can result from contaminants in the home,” added Fabian. “Homes are an ecosystem. As a result, every component of that system including HVAC, pest control, cleaning, water treatment, and more, must be carefully reviewed to keep families safe and healthy. Understanding these relationships is an important step in the direction of fostering a healthy housing environment, and we are pleased to be working with The Healthy House Institute to make this information available to the public.
