Join Dr. Wayne Ruga, from 2-4 p.m. Eastern Time on March 31, for the CARITAS Café: Life-Enhancing Design. The CARITAS Café is a place where participants engage with a group of like-minded individuals who care about improving health, healthcare and design. The purpose of this meeting is to share, learn, improve, connect, support, be supported and build a better world.
In his 1971 book, Hospital Modernization and Expansion, E. Todd Wheeler speculated that “the physician of the future will prescribe environments for their patients.” The assumption is that these environments will have proven therapeutic benefits and will support medical treatment. Now, 50 years after Wheeler’s writing — when a global pandemic is sweeping our world — we could all benefit from a new conversation to update how to harness the ability of the environment to be more life-enhancing, and to discover new ways of collaborating and synergizing our efforts.
A $25-minimum donation is requested to participate. All donations must be made by Friday, March 26, by clicking the donation button at: www.thecaritasproject.info. Space is limited; reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Donation receipts are automatically provided, and an email confirmation will be sent with further details. All sessions will be live on Zoom.
