    The AIA, AIA Foundation and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture will host a summit in April 2014 titled The Value of Design: Design and Health. In anticipation of that event, the AIA Design and Health Leadership Group has prepared a Call for Abstracts which invites the submission of abstracts of ongoing or recently completed design and research projects that address the intersection of design and human health. The submission deadline is February 12.

    Feel free to pass along this Call for Abstracts within your own network so that we may reach a larger audience and curate a one-of-a-kind summit featuring the best work across a myriad of academic, professional, and scientific fields.

    You can find the Call for Abstracts and more information on the Design and Health Summit here: http://acsa-arch.org/resources/faculty-resources/curriculum-research/design-and-health
