The Victorian Healthy Homes Program: improving health and wellbeing through home thermal comfort upgrades for vulnerable people
The Research Institute for Innovative Solutions for Well-being and Health (INSIGHT), the Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation (CHERE), the Faculty of Health UTS, the Institute for Sustainable Futures at UTS, and Sustainability Victoria are excited to invite you to our event to hear our research findings from the Victorian Healthy Homes Program.
This innovative research involved a rigorous evaluation of the health, quality of life and energy benefits of retro-fit thermal comfort upgrades in the homes of Victorians with chronic health conditions and low income. The analysis showed wide-ranging benefits over the winter period, including cost savings. The researchers will be presenting their findings and discussing the project and its significance at a public event.
Join us on the 29th of March, 4 pm – 7 pm, at the Great Hall, Building 1, Level 5, UTS City Campus, for presentations and discussions, followed by drinks.
Working collaboratively in partnership, our aim is to promote research knowledge exchange that will deliver positive and impactful health and well-being for elderly low-income Australians.
Date: Wednesday, 29 March
Time: Presentation starts at 4 pm, followed by refreshments from 5:30 pm
Where: The Great Hall, Building 1, Level 5, UTS Tower, (Building 1), Broadway, Ultimo
