The Bay Area’s population will grow by approximately 2 million more people over the next 30 years. With this increase in urban density, we will need to prepare for how we will address health issues as well as improve managed care. Healthscapes 2050 will explore the physical and societal challenges in this new frontier of rapid urbanization and how we will plan and design spaces in the future to promote human health. Our panel of market and subject experts will address key questions as we look towards the evolution of healthcare:
1. What are the health challenges that the Bay Area faces in the future high density, urban environment?2. What do we expect the impact of urban stress to be on our physical, mental, emotional, and occupational health and safety?3. How do we anticipate healthcare services to change in order to address future needs of urban residents?4. How can we plan cities and communities now in response to these factors?5. What will future health facilities look like and how do we envision their integration to urban centers?
