Ambler Campus: Lecture - Jack Carman — “Benefits of Nature and Healing”
Start Date: 11/6/2013Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 11/6/2013

Event Description:
Join Jack Carman, FASLA, RLA, CAPS, president of Design for Generations LLC, as he presents “Benefits of Nature and Healing.” Continuing research studies validate the concept that access to nature can help reduce stress, refresh our minds, strengthen our immune systems and help us recover sooner from illness. These specialized gardens can be found in senior care communities, healthcare facilities, schools, public parks and many other settings. These unique garden environments maximize the effectiveness of clinical treatments for illness and disabilities and create enjoyable garden experiences that help to reduce staff turnover, increase client/patient satisfaction and contribute to the longevity of an organization. Jack Carman is a landscape architect with more than 20 years experience in the analysis, planning, design and management of outdoor spaces. As a design consultant, Carman has specialized in creating therapeutic exterior environments for senior communities and healthcare facilities. His design experience includes the creation of more than 100 landscape plans for assisted living and Alzheimer residences, adult day health care centers, long term care facilities, continuing care retirement communities and healthcare facilities in over 18 states throughout the U.S. Refreshments follow the lecture at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium Lobby.
