We are pleased to announce that Brian Cravens, AIA, and Michelle Ferial Asadies, AIA with Puchlik Design Associates have started a Healthcare Committee as a part of the AIA Pasadena and Foothill Chapter. This group will be affiliated with the AIA LA Healthcare Committee and will share the similar mission of “Striving to educate and inspire the healthcare design and planning communities.”

Our goal is to create a platform for the Pasadena and Foothill healthcare community to present their work and provide opportunities for networking. We plan to have up to four (4) presentation meetings/events per year.

If you are interested in joining the Healthcare Group, please contact Brian, Michelle or the chapter office!
