Why are you motivated to participate in the Health Leaders Network? How will your participation enhance your current and future work?

Throughout my career, I have always highly valued the healthcare service and facility design community, and have advocated the benefits of sharing experiences and examples of new thinking and best practice with peers. As my career has taken me to different locations, I have been fortunate to speak at international healthcare conferences on matters as diverse as Evidence Based Sense Sensitive Design for Children to Lean Thinking in Healthcare Design.

I anticipate that participation in the ULI Health Leaders Network will broaden the circle of contacts and level of debate around healthcare settings and their roles within our urbanizing world. I look forward to hearing multiple perspectives on the subject and to sharing my own experiences and thoughts.
