ENGINEERS ARE THE PHYSICIANS OF THE FUTURE

Presented by Dr. Stephanie Taylor

Dr. Stephanie Taylor graduated from Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, and worked as a pediatric oncologist and cellular biologist for several decades.  Alarmed by the high number of patients acquiring infections during their in-patient treatment, she became convinced that the hospital built environment played some role in these problems. Realizing that she knew little about the design and management of buildings and mechanical systems, she returned to school in 2005 to obtain a Master's degree in Architecture and then spent several years designing hospitals.

Dr. Taylor, now CEO of Taylor Healthcare Consulting, works nationally and internationally as a research leader to better understand how the design and operation of hospitals, offices, schools and all occupied buildings can help people thrive, not merely survive.

She has published in Nature, Science and other peer reviewed journals, is a Distinguished Lecturer for ASHRAE and a columnist for Engineered Systems magazine. She received the "Women to Watch in the HVAC Industry" award in 2019. She is also a member of the ASHRE Environmental Health Committee and the ASHRAE Epidemic Task Group.

Tech Session: 6:45 - 7:45 PM
