AHC Spring 2021: Resiliency Through Emotional Well-Being and Mental Health
This year’s AIA AHC Spring Event includes two days of virtual interdisciplinary presentations, design case studies, and conversations around how we can address design and construction resiliency, while maintaining an ever-present focus on emotional well-being and mental health for all occupants. How we can overcome obstacles and challenges that prevent us from truly wholistic and resilient design in healthcare environments? How do we measure the environmental, economic, and psychological value of regulation, manage risk, and keep humans at the center of design.
This program is all online, with closed captioning. Please note in your registration if you would like to be contacted about specific accommodations to fully participate in the program.
This program is presented by AIA Seattle’s Architecture for Health Committee. Please contact Connor Descheemaker with any questions or concerns.
