.2 CEU/ 2 HSW, CC# 106174-1000 (ASID, IIDA, IDA, IDCEC)

Limited Space Available – Click Here to Sign Up early! Early Bird Registration $50 for the 2 hour CEU

Today, Americans spend 93% of their time indoors – more than any time in history. We know that 80% of longevity is dictated by lifestyle and environment. This advanced level CEU is uniquely presented because it leads with the question; how can this space be designed to extend life, promote health, happiness, prevent disease and even heal existing illnesses – for people of all ages. This conversation goes way beyond “Universal Design”. It approaches design with emphasis on stimulating and supporting restoration by focusing on 8 areas that science has proven that promote longer healthier lives. Restoration, prevention, motivation and elimination of illness is a lot to ask of our spaces, but it can be done.

Learning Objectives:
1. Design spaces that significantly extend life and the quality of living for the safety and welfare of the public.
2. Grasp the 8 areas that science credits the greatest regenerative affects to the human body.
3. Isolate technologies that damage the human body and shorten life span.
