Brought to you by the Committee on Architecture for Health



Health Symposium Exhibition & Social (SES) annually provides an opportunity for education and networking to members of the architectural and healthcare communities. However 2021 will look a little different, we are going VIRTUAL.  

We recognize that the global pandemic we're experiencing is creating intense challenges for most everyone.  As a result, AIA Houston has decided to move 2021 Health SES to be 100% virtual.  By going virtual, we have an opportunity to expand our engagement to organizations throughout the U.S.  We understand that a virtual event isn't quite the same as in-person, but we are confident we can deliver a fantastic conference providing meaningful knowledge and content.


Theme:  The Moment after this Moment - Future of Healthcare in Houston

We will discuss healthcare system leaders’ thoughts and experiences from 2020.  How each system has managed their facilities and operations during COVID.  How are they taking care of staff?  How do they develop a business plan for the future that protects the Health, Safety,  & Welfare of patients?  Does telehealth change the way they deliver care?
