This Institute (IBE) has an extraordinarily important role to play in educating the public about the critical role that buildings have in human health. IBE is the only place I know of where all the information concerning creating health supporting buildings is collected for the public. I became concerned about the indoor environment in 1987 when both wife and I were made environmentally ill by our home and work environments. I found out about IBE in 1988 through a magazine ad. IBE was the answer to my prayers.

And it provided the information needed to correct the problems. My life would not be the same without IBE.
