2016 PDC Summit

1380 - How PDC Professionals Can Promote Community Health

Mar 23, 2016 7:00am ‐ Mar 23, 2016 8:15am


Description

This panel discussion led by Robert Ivy, CEO of the American Institute of Architects, will discuss how we shape our communities to promote healthy living. Architects, engineers, and contractors can design and build environments that incorporate physical activity into people's daily routines, give them a community with attractive destinations within walking or biking distance, and keep safety in mind with lighting, "eyes on the street" design, traffic calming, and other techniques to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety. An upfront investment in good design can save money—and lives—in the long run.

Speaker(s):

  • Robert Ivy, FAIA, EVP/Chief Executive Officer, American Institute of Architects (AIA)
  • John Kouletsis, AIA, EDAC, Vice President, Facilities Planning & Design - National Facilities Services, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc.
  • Shannon Kraus, FAIA, FACHA, MBA, Principal and Senior Vice President, HKS, Inc.
