2017 ULI Health Leaders Network Program Participants Announced

The Building Healthy Places Initiative is delighted to announce the 2017 participants in the ULI Health Leaders Network, a new program generously supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Colorado Health Foundation, and ULI Foundation Governor Randall Lewis.

The ULI Health Leaders Network is designed to empower real estate and land use professionals with the skills, knowledge, and networks to improve health outcomes in their professional practice and communities. The first cohort of Health Leaders will convene in an introductory forum during ULI’s Fall Meeting in Los Angeles, participate in a series of webinars, work on small group projects involving a commercial corridor in Seattle, and conclude with a final forum in Denver.

Thirty-two professionals in real estate development, planning, design, engineering, finance, and healthcare from across the country have been selected to participate in the first cohort. Click on the links below to learn more about the Health Leaders for 2017-2018:
