 Keynote to be Offered by  Dr. William Sullivan, a leading expert on how place and our local environments impact individual and community health. Dr. Sullivan is Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Illinois where he works to create healthier, more sustainable communities. He and his students examine the health benefits that come from having regular exposure to urban landscapes containing green infrastructure. They have found that regular contact with urban green infrastructure—places with trees, grass, rain gardens, and the like—has profound, positive impacts for individuals and communities. These urban green spaces need not be large or pristine to convey a variety of broad-ranging out-comes. They must, however, be easily accessible from a person’s home or workplace.
