The Green Building Matters Podcast with Charlie Cichetti

Oct 8, 2021

Stephen Brown is at IWBI and supports the WELL building standard.  He has an opportunity to share unique strategies to improve health and wellbeing at scale. WELL helps provide 100% participation in a passive delivery system of preventative health & wellbeing intentions through real estate.

In his free time he enjoys hiking with my family, watching my daughter perform on stage and traveling internationally. He is always seeking ways to incorporate wellness into his daily life while connecting like-minded people and ideas through LinkedIn.
