What does it mean to experience the industry as an "othered" practitioner and how can we shift the lens though which we all practice? This discussion will explore the history of how architecture has traditionally been practiced in the U.S., how our history informs the level and frequency of care that patients receive, and what a more equitable future looks like. The concept of advocate architecture will be explored.
