Leading healthcare facility architects and administrators will address the design implications of population health, a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach aimed at improving healthcare outcomes for all population groups, during the Fall 2016 Architecture-For-Health Lecture Series at the Texas A&M College of Architecture.

The lectures, open to the public, will take place most Fridays at 11:30 a.m. in Scoates Hall Room 208.

The series, "The Global Impact of the Concept of Population Health on the Design of Health Networks & Health Facilities,” is also offered to students as a 1-hour credit course: ARCH 681 for graduate students and ARCH 481 for undergraduates.

“Population health, a concept gaining traction among healthcare industry leaders, focuses on reducing health disparities among population groups caused by social, environmental, cultural and physical differences, and additional factors,” said George J. Mann, lecture series coordinator and holder of the Ronald L. Skaggs, FAIA Endowed Professorship in Health Facilities Design. The concept, he added, is a change from the industry’s traditional focus on individual healthcare.

“The series will provide in-depth discussions about population health, a key element of healthcare reform, from experts in several disciplines,” said Bita Kash, director of the Texas A&M Center for Health Organization Transformation, who is also coordinating the series with Zhipeng Lu, associate director, Center for Health Systems & Design and senior lecturer of architecture.

The series is a collaborative effort of the Texas A&M College of Architecture, the Center for Health Systems & Design, CHOT and the School of Public Health at Texas A&M University.
