NextGen 2020 Q1 Update

By Eileen Trimbach, AIA

The NextGen Committee begins another year serving as the “front porch” for the Academy —engaging young people to the AAH community and creating a gathering ground to grow together. A key portal to connect and learn for the committee is the Passion: Health Design Video Lecture Series. Anyone interested in joining Passion: Health Design lecture series, contact Jacob Richie at Lecture series will begin on February 27th with a lecture from Caroline Brigham on her research on Healthcare design in Africa and India.

There are several opportunities to encourage the next generation of leaders within the Academy currently underway. The SLS Scholarship program, which gives funding for emerging professionals to attend the Summer Leadership Summit (SLS) this summer in Chicago, is currently accepting applications. The SLS is an annual gathering of approximately 175 leaders in healthcare from the USA and around the world representing various disciplines including government, finance, business and the design community to join thoughts addressing the future of healthcare. 

The U40 List, recognizing health design’s best under 40, is also currently accepting applications. More information on the U40 list here
