Fostering Health Leadership-Reclaiming our Health by Shaping our Spaces

Are your spaces depriving you of health and happiness? The environments where we live, work, and play have been shown through research to have a substantial impact on our productivity, well-being, and health. We need everyday leaders who are willing to drive change and implement strategies for improving our health and well-being within our buildings, organizations, and communities.

Through the lens of the WELL Building Standard™, which is a movement and rating system for promoting health and wellness in buildings, Katherine Osterman will guide us through the latest scientific research and industry best practices to understand the issues and impacts our spaces have on our health. This session explores the leadership of organizations and individuals that is needed to transform our built environment into healthier, happier, and more equitable spaces.
