The eighth in the series of Building Healthy Places Interest Forums will be held in conjunction with ULI’s Fall Meeting in Boston.
This forum, generously supported by ULI Foundation Governor Randall Lewis, brings together leaders in health, wellness, and real estate to discuss what they are doing, planning, and observing in the field. This will be a content-heavy, interactive discussion and exchange.
The forum is being organized in collaboration with ULI member leaders and will focus on sharing information about Boston-based projects at the intersection of health and the built environment and applying lessons from these projects to the work of forum participants from across the country.
When: Monday, October 8, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Where: Convene at One Boston Place
Cost: A registration fee is required to attend the Forum.
Early registration: $150 (ends 9/10)
Regular registration: $200
- Provide a place for ULI members who are passionate about health and development to meet and engage with each other
- Offer a chance for ULI members to share knowledge and insights
- Update forum participants on the latest work that is being done at ULI and other organizations on health and real estate
The Forum is open to all ULI members who are attending Fall Meeting. If you are interested in attending, please email us at [email protected]. Please note that we prefer no more than two people per organization to attend the Forum.
The Building Healthy Places Interest Forum is open to ULI Full and Associate members and will be capped at about 55 people.
To facilitate dialogue, we will again create a small book with a brief biography and a photo of all participants. Please send a brief bio and photo to [email protected] after you register. If you attended previous forums, please send any updates to your bio or photo.
