In the new economy, metropolitan areas must offer high quality built environments if they are to compete for businesses and talented professionals. Additionally, around the world and in the Kansas City region, communities face health challenges affected by the built environment. For many years, ULI and its members have been active players in discussions on how to make the link between human health and development. ULI recognizes that health is a core component of thriving communities.

 Through the Building Healthy Places Initiative, ULI has produced a number of research reports, including Ten Principles for Building Healthy Places. This report is based on three advisory service panels and insights from ULI research in Colorado in 2013. (Read more about these Advisory Services panels here.) The report sets out ten important principles that can be used to create a new approach to building healthy communities.

Guest speaker David Scheuer, a residential developer, was chair of the Ten Principles workshop upon which the publication is based. Scheuer will share information on these ten principles, and will be joined by a panel of health and design leaders who will offer their perspective on what the Kansas City region can do to create healthy places. The panel discussion will be moderated by Marlene Nagel, community development director, Mid-America Regional Council (MARC). The following panelists will share thoughts about how local projects and places can be shaped to improve the health of our community:

Bridget McCandless, M.D., MBA, FACP, President/CEO of the Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City
Arielle D. Bogorad, Director, Worldwide Benefits, Wellness and Fitness, Cerner Corporation
Scott Wagner, 1st District Councilman, City of Kansas City, Missouri
James Pfeiffer, AIA LEED AP BD+C, Architect, BNIM
