Between myself and the three other editors on this brand, we've covered a lot of ground while gathering a ton of insight from the people in the trenches. But we always want more. And to that end, I'm thrilled to announce our expanded Editorial Advisory Board. The board itself is not new; until now it was a small group of wonderfully smart and prolific experts in healthcare design with whom we'd connect regularly to take the pulse of the industry. But the time has come to add some new faces (and a lot more, actually), as the scope of healthcare design work-and the goals of the Healthcare Design brand- evolve and grow. Our new Editorial Advisory Board includes 30 high-level professionals, all representing different organizations. We have 15 architects practicing in national and regional firms, five interior designers, five owners, and five others allied to the field (consultants, construction and engineering leaders, and an evidence-based design trailblazer). It was quite a task, coming up with the right balance of people and specialties. Ultimately, we wanted firms and organizations of different sizes, from different parts of the country, but all with a driving passion for healthcare. We sought out individuals who could bring, and would willingly share, their keen insight into all levels of the design process and the peculiarities of the healthcare field. We fully intend to put them to work, turning to the board regularly for feedback, project updates, and industry predictions. They're all game, and they're certainly up to the task. On pages 8 and 10, you can meet our new board members by name. And while we're very excited to have them, that doesn't mean our editorial strategy of talking to as many people as possible, gathering as many perspectives as possible, is going to change at all. So don't be surprised to see us approaching you at our events, or when that Ohio area code shows up on your line. HCD Healthcare Design is a trademark owned exclusively by Emerald Expositions LLC.
