SA•P – HSC proposal to develop curriculum in Design for Community Health garners grant from American Institute of Architects

With a focus on developing an interprofessional program in Design for Community Health, SA•P partners with HSC to secure one of three, first-ever Decade of Design grants from the AIA. The grant will support an interdisciplinary seminar and bring a prominent speaker to UNM this spring. The project team from UNM includes Associate Dean Michaele Pride, Professor Mark Childs and Professor Roger Schluntz (all faculty in Architecture), along with Leah Steimel, Director of Urban Health Partners; Dr. Cynthia Arndell, SOM; and Michel Disco, Director of the HSC Office of Interprofessional Education. The award was announced at this week's meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, which is a partner in this 10-year initiative.
