GS&P’s Sheila Bosch Spearheads New EBD Journal Club

TAMPA, Fla. – Gresham, Smith and Partners announces that Director of Research Sheila Bosch, Ph.D., EDAC, LEED AP, is spearheading a committee to launch the Center for Health Design’s new Evidence-Based Design Journal Club. The club is open to all and will offer a series of free, interactive webinars to help design professionals translate EBD study findings into day-to-day applications. The center has planned four quarterly sessions for 2013 addressing a wide range of topics in the healthcare design industry including patient safety, operational efficiency and space utilization.

“I’m thrilled to lead this initiative that provides a forum for my industry peers – designers, researchers, physicians, nurses and administrators – to discuss the best ways to put key EBD studies into practice,” said Bosch. “It’s not only a great way for each attendee to proactively develop their own knowledge and skills, but also an important step in advancing the value of Evidence-Based Design in the healthcare field – and ultimately the design of more effective healing environments. I look forward to the journal club’s growth and I am proud that several of my GS&P colleagues and other leaders from across the country have signed on to join the sessions.”
