AIA Academy of Architecture for Health
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has been the leading professional membership association for licensed architects, emerging professionals, and allied partners since 1857. With nearly 300 state and local chapters, the AIA serves as the voice of the architecture profession and a resource for its members. The AIA Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) is an AIA knowledge community for architects who practice in the field of health care design.
The mission of the AAH is to “improve both the quality of health care design and the design of healthy communities by developing, documenting, and disseminating knowledge; educating design practitioners and other related constituencies; advancing the practice of architecture; and affiliating and advocating with others that share these priorities." The Academy supports research through the Academy of Architecture for Health Foundation.
