Collaboration Celebration 2019, The Westin Sarasota, Tuesday, 26. March 2019

Why is place important?
We know from research that a person’s zip code is a more reliable determinant of health than their genetic code. Why then, do we still struggle with poverty, addiction and homlessness in this region of beauty and prosperity?
Join us in March as we discuss the value of shared space, and learn how our one-stop-shop for human services invites collaboration, offers accessibility, and drives better outcomes for the most vulnerable parts of our population.
Guest speaker Elma J. Felix-Lamontagne, AICP, will deliver a presentation about how places help to shape the identity of a community. 
With over 11 years of experience, Elma has worked on a variety of global projects at every scale. Her experience focuses on urban-design, master planning, sustainability and policy-based implementation strategies. Her complementary background in architecture helps define the urban rooms in which we live our public lives. Elma's research includes topics on resiliency, public engagement and the relationship between urban-design and the social equity of places. In her current position, she champions policy and land use solutions that promote economic, social, and environmental benefits for Sarasota County.
