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.
The ULI Health Leaders Network facilitates creative collaborations within the fields of public health, planning and design, and development, and empowers participants with actionable knowledge on development and design strategies that improve health.
The program will begin with two cohorts, each running for one year and including approximately 30 participants each. The first cohort runs from October 2017 through June 2018. The second cohort will begin in October 2018.
Participants in the Health Leaders Network are expected to attend two in-person forums, which will focus on leadership development and network building. The introductory forum will be held in conjunction with ULI’s Fall Meeting in Boston (October 8-11, 2018) and the closing forum will be held in May 2019 at ULI’s headquarters in Washington, DC.
Health Leaders will also participate in five interactive webinars exploring topics related to health and land use and interact with others in their cohort through small group assignments and peer reviews of individual assignments.
