Over the past 50 years, the evolution of healthcare design has seen dramatic, and often times revolutionary changes that have had profound, positive impacts on how care is delivered and received. These changes have been shepherded by icons of the industry whose leadership has had lasting impact. 

This webinar offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to hear from two titans of the industry, who will share their insights on how healthcare design has evolved and where it is headed. With a combined 80 years of experience in the field, they’ll share key milestones and the impact they have had on patients and care givers. In this casual conversation amongst colleagues and friends, these thought leaders will share their real-world experiences, memorable stories from their careers and most importantly, they’ll help guide attendees towards a path forward and shed light on their view of the opportunities for the future of healthcare delivery and design.
