COVID-19 Webinar Series: Voices of the Industry
Three Dialogues Examining COVID-19 and the Built Environment
A virtual exchange of experiences, insights and expectations among exemplars of the healthcare and design industries.
Dialogue #3: The healthcare industry and the built environment that supports it has seen unprecedented change and evolution of innovative care practices, solutions, and settings. As we find ourselves entering the Summer and looking back on what has occurred and what we have learned, it is clear that “return to normal” will not be the new normal. It is predicted that moving forward, healthcare delivery will occur everywhere and in new and alternative settings and that where we live, work and conduct our lives will continue to morph and meld. Join this panel of industry leaders for a dynamic and frank discussion about what we’ve seen and where we are headed, including:

Dana Boyd Barr, Research Professor, Faculty, Environmental Health, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University
After a 23-year career with CDC and 5 years as Emory/RSPH adjunct faculty, Dr. Barr accepted a faculty appointment at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health in 2010. She co-directs RSPH's Laboratory for Exposure Assessment and Development in Environmental Research (LEADER; leaderlaboratory.org). Dr. Barr is the Director of the Analytic Core/Targeted Research Resource of the NIH-funded Human Exposome Research Center: Understanding Lifetime Exposures (HERCULES) and Children's Health Exposure Assessment Resource (CHEAR), respectively. These centers provide analytic support for a variety of exposome-related environmental health studies. Dr. Barr also directs the Biomarker Core of the Household Air Pollution Invervention Network Trial (HAPIN), a large multi-site international study evaluating the effectiveness of clean-burning gas stoves in reducing household biomass-burning exposures and their resulting health outcomes in India, Peru, Rwanda and Guatemala. She also directs "Project 1: Characterizing Exposures in an Urban Environment (CHERUB)" of Emory's joint SON and RSPH Center for Children's Health, Environment, Microbiome and Metabolome (C-CHEM2) which seeks to understand unique exposures of concern in an SES-diverse African American birth cohort in Atlanta and their relation with microbiota, endogenous metabolic perturbations and neurodevelopment. Her other research focuses on understanding prenatal exposures and neurodevelopment in a Southeast Asian birth cohort, the SAWASDEE study, in Thailand. Dr. Barr is a Deputy Editor for Environmental Health Perspectives, Editor Emeritus of the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology and past-president of the International Society of Exposure Science. She was recognized as a Thomas Reuters Top Cited Scientist in Environment/Ecology in 2014, 2015 and 2116 and was listed in Thomson Reuters World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds in 2014. Dr. Barr's research involves using analytical chemistry to assess exposure to a variety of environmental toxicants, an area called exposure science. She uses these data to evaluate sources of exposure or risks from exposure with a primary focus on maternal-child health issues.
