NEW ORLEANS – AOS Interior Environments, local design assist firm, will host a free virtual panel on resiliency in healthcare at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 18. The conversation will cover short- and long-term strategies for designing safe healthcare environments amid a global health crisis.
The panel will consist of Dina Salvaggio, principal and healthcare consultant of Jacobs; Brandon Kristol, operations project manager of LCMC; Darren Rozas, partner of Rozas Ward Architects; Jacob Corbell, executive vice president of business development for Cardiovascular Institute of the South; and Marianne Graffam, architect at Sizeler Thompson Brown Architects.
“Over the last several months, the healthcare industry has been at the frontlines of the pandemic, striving to provide the best care possible while making quick decisions, adapting to new roles and testing new treatments. It’s required them to creatively solve challenges and rethink how services can be delivered,” said Rebecca Cooley, vice president of manufactured interior construction and moderator for the series. “This esteemed group of community leaders will provide unique perspectives in response to those challenges, and we look forward to hearing their invaluable insights.”
This is the fifth installment in a series of events focused on resiliency across the Greater New Orleans region. Starting in May, AOS has invited five experts each month to discuss industry specific responses. Topics have included workplace, hospitality, arts, music and entertainment, and education and have collectively drawn more than 300 attendees from the local design and business community. The company plans to keep going throughout the remainder of the year, already lining up panelists for non-profit, civic, and the private sector.
Shelby Russ, AOS president and CEO said, “It’s been powerful to see the response to this series. It takes a collective community to build more resilient spaces, not just during a crisis, but environments that are ready to tackle every day needs.”
All of the events are free and open to the public. Architects who attend can obtain continuing education unit (CEU) credit by self-reporting to the AIA. Instructions will be sent via email following the event. Attendees will tune in via zoom and can register here.
