Session Description

There are many health determinants that go beyond the fundamental health care basics that have a role in improving community health. Design plays a key role in addressing many of these health determinants, and in partnership with health care systems, there are many opportunities to make impactful change through community integration and the built environment to support healthy behavior, lifestyles and in turn, healthy communities. Thinking beyond the boundaries of a health care facility or campus and looking at the broader context where the communities’ health systems reside enables providers, as well as architects and designers, the opportunity to impact health across a broad spectrum of environments.
