Vice President Practice - Qihong Deng
I am now chair professor and deputy dean of Zhengzhou University School of Public Health, China. I have mainly focused on the health risk of air pollution and global warming, with the objectives to design comfortable and healthy buildings/cities. My recent findings that prenatal exposure to indoor/outdoor air pollution increases the risk of allergic diseases in children provide a new public health control strategy for preventing the rapid increase of childhood allergic diseases in the world, and have been incorporated into several international consensus, guidelines, and policies. I am now an associate editor for International Journal of Environmental Health Research, and editorial board members for more than 10 international journals including Environment International, International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health, Building and Environment, Energy and Buildings, and Indoor Air. I have been elected as fellows of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ), New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM), Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS), and International Society of the Built Environment (ISBE). I was the president of Healthy Buildings 2019 Asia.
