CIHF: Reinventing Health, Hospitality, and Design Symposium and ReImagining Workshop
May 11 @ 4:00 pm - May 13 @ 4:00 pm EDT
The Cornell Institute for Healthy Futures will host innovative thought leaders in healthcare, health policy, hospitality, wellness, and architectural design. The symposium will open with a welcome reception on the evening of Thursday, May 11. The full-day symposium will start on Friday, May 12, to explore how decision makers and designers can respond to changing needs in mental health, work life balance, wellness, safety by design, affordable senior living, and other related areas. Together industry experts, academic scholars, leaders, and students will explore current challenges and possible evidence-based solutions with an interdisciplinary perspective.
Following the symposium, the third day, Saturday, May 13, will feature a more intimate hands-on thought design workshop led by Troy Savage. Designers will join healthcare and senior living leaders to collaborate in an interactive day of re-imagining the design of assisted living facilities in response to changing needs.
