Place shapes behaviors important for health, especially healthy aging. The session will describe features of the built environment, which promote physical health and emotional wellbeing, with a focus on aging populations. It will reveal evidence drawn from research in many domains on how elements of the built environment, such as light, sounds, and physical layout, can help maintain health, enhance physical activity, reduce stress, reduce falls, improve moods, and even act as memory aids to those whose memory is failing. It will show how wearable health and real-time environmental sensors are helping the elderly extend independence while aging in place.

Speaker:

Esther Sternberg, M.D., inaugural Andrew Weil Chair for Research in Integrative Medicine
