The needs of the next generation are rapidly changing.

Join internationally renown allied health pioneer and researcher, Dr Lucy Jane Miller, and leading Australian health and built environment professionals as they share their expertise and thoughts on tackling the growing challenges of designing cities for the next generation. 

This afternoon seminar will address two emerging questions: 

How does the design of our built environment impact the health and well being of our next generation? 

How do we foster an inter-disciplinary approach to mitigate and lessen the emerging health trends of the next generation?
