We wanted to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone who attended our Safe at Home: Understanding Common Environmental Hazards webinar.
GASP would be remiss if we didn’t also express our gratitude to our panelists leading our Jan. 30 event.
First there was Rhett “The Energy Doctor” Majors, who has been helping people in our area save energy, provide a healthy living environment, and be more comfortable in their homes and businesses for more than three decades. Rhett has been an energy auditor, field supervisor, quality control inspector (QCI), and weatherization director of both utility and weatherization assistance programs.
Our Safe at Home webinar also featured Heath Papinchak, who owns and operates Welcome Home, Home Inspections with her wife, Becky. Welcome Home, Home Inspections has offered residential home inspections and various environmental testing such as lead water, mold, and radon for the past eight years.
Last but certainly not least, GASP was joined by Nesta Bortey-Sam, an assistant professor dealing with environmental and occupational health at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Public Health. He earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees in environmental chemistry at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology in Ghana and his doctorate in toxicology at Hokkaido University in Japan.
If you missed it, no worries: The event recording is now available on GASP’s YouTube channel (go ahead and hit that Subscribe button when you get there!). You can also watch it here:
