Gresham Smith’s Corie Baker to Lead Workshop at CleanMed
Integrated Process for Health Promotion Workshop
Led by Senior Architect Corie Baker, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, EDAC, WELL AP
Touching every aspect of our lives, the built environment is a powerful determinant of both individual and population health. While the public health sector has developed a robust understanding of the relationship between health and human-made spaces, it has been limited in its ability to effectively influence the built environment. The Green Health Partnership—a research and development initiative comprised of industry experts in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and University of Virginia School of Medicine—was founded on the idea that the lessons learned by the green building movement could provide the public health sector with guidance on how to transform the built environment. In this workshop, Baker will explore how the Green Health Partnership’s effort in developing the LEED v4 BD+C Rating System’s Integrative Process for Health Promotion pilot credit can guide the prioritization of design decisions, leading participants through a case study exercise to develop sound strategies to address community health conditions.
