The seventh in the series of Building Healthy Places Interest Forums will be held in conjunction with ULI’s Spring Meeting in Detroit.
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 Detroit-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: Tuesday, May 1, 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (with an optional walk to the Forum along the Detroit RiverWalk trail beginning at 7:00 a.m.)
Where: Michigan Outdoor Adventure Center – 1801 Atwater St, Detroit, MI 48207
Cost: A registration fee is required to attend the Forum. Discounted registration fees are being charged thanks to the generosity of Randall Lewis.
Early registration: $75 (ends 3/30)
Regular registration: $125 (ends 4/13)
Late registration: $150 (after 4/13)
