Culturally-Reflective Healthcare Environments: Techniques and Case Studies

This webinar provides a comprehensive view of the unique healthcare challenges faced in Indian Country and the opportunities that exist for AE firms to respond with a culturally-reflective design approach, regardless of client population. Attendees will learn the value of integrating culturally specific symbols into healthcare environments and the process of community outreach that can reveal unique patient needs that can become the basis of the building design. Case studies will highlight specific problems underserved populations face in the healthcare context, including context-driven barriers to access and chronic ailments symptomatic of incompatible lifeways. Examples will be discussed through the lens of how design and placemaking around holistic community wellbeing can positively impact patients belonging and health outcomes.
