Organized by: Architectural Practice Talks
Venue: 53rd Street New York Public Library
18 West 53rd Street
New York
Join us for an evening presentation by Karen Kubey.   Her talk, Architecture for Health, asks, How can an architect help advance health equity? Across the country, low-income communities of color are in a health crisis. New York’s East Harlem has an average life expectancy of 76. Directly south, residents of the more affluent Upper East Side live to an average of 85. Studies show a surprising correlation: the best predictor of our health is where we live. Exploring the potentials of health-centered interventions in the built environment, Karen will present work that brings together architects, policy and finance experts, and community leaders to promote greater health equity.   This event is brought to you by APT and New York Public Library.
