“The Environment is NOT Neutral: poor fit and health vulnerabilities” presentation by Dr. Lynne Dearborn. Moderated by Assistant Professor Trudy Watt

Lecture Summary

Much of the general public ignores the environment and environmental conditions until they become intolerable. People unconsciously make accommodations for poor fit with the environment or blame the occupants for unhealthy behaviors. These poor-fit conditions and the unconscious accommodations and unhealthy behaviors they engender, can increase individual- and population-health vulnerabilities. Environmental designers have a hand in human health outcomes and must help identify and develop interventions that contribute to the battle against chronic and acute mental and physical illnesses.

This event is sponsored by ARCHNET, a registered student organization with an event grant from the Student Appropriations Committee at UWM. ARCHNET strives to foster the doctoral student experience at SARUP as well as the relationship between doctoral students and the larger academic community.
