The ULI Health Leaders Network is empowering real estate and land use professionals with the skills, knowledge, and networks to improve health outcomes in their professional practice and communities.
Participants gain valuable skills and connections that will help them advance their careers, as well as practical knowledge about the intersection between health and the built environment.
