Resilient Places; Resilient Aging Consensus Conference
Friday, April 28 8:00am-5:00pm
Place: Sorenson Molecular Biotechnology Building Rm 2650 (Star Building)
The University of Utah is aiming to become a leader in the research and promotion of healthier designed environments across the lifespan including older adults. Sponsored by the Colleges of Architecture + Planning, Health, Nursing, Social Work and the School of Medicine and in conjunction with the Center on Aging’s Annual Retreat, this conference will have presentations in the morning from international speakers addressing the continuum from environmental quality to biological health outcomes for older adults.
The afternoon will be a World Café involving small group discussion of our international guests, faculty and key community members to help define the opportunities and direction of such an initiative. We would be honored by your willingness to share your time and wisdom with us.
