Seminar: Electromagnetic Radiation – 2024

September 23, 2024 — September 27, 2024  |  8am—5pm

This Building Biology Institute 5-day on-site in person seminar will lead you under the expert guidance of co-instructors Larry Gust and Rob Metzinger on an exploration of all the wireless technology and electromagnetic radiation issues and toxic environmental stressors inside and outside a dwelling or commercial or public building that are harmful to human health. Join Larry, Rob, and their dedicated team of lab leaders (one lab leader for every five students to ensure you receive expert hands-on training in meter use and interpretation) at our new lakefront venue, Kanuga Retreat & Conference Center, in Hendersonville, North Carolina

This venue has been thoroughly vetted by Diana Schultz, BBEC, EMRS to ensure its buildings and its surrounds meet or exceed Building Biology standards for health-supporting environments.

Watch co-instructor Larry Gust’s lecture on magnetic field radiation sources, here below, one of several hands-on lessons you’ll learn in person, on-site during lab sessions at this seminar:
