Event: Institute for Human Centered Design Lecture Series
Presentation Date: Thursday, December 10, 2015
Event Location: Boston, MA
Two experts, one an architect/physician and one a user/expert collaborated on an essay in the Health Environments Research & Design (HERD) Journal. Dr. Diana Anderson, MRAIC and Penny Shaw, Ph.D. present on the critical need for human-centered healthcare design.
Penny reached out to Diana after reading a piece in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (JAGS) in order to relate her story of how a window changed her experience dramatically while in long-term care. They teamed up to write a piece for HERD that builds on the topic of windows and exterior views.
