Age-Friendly DC, World Health Organization + American Institute of Architects
During my time working with Age-Friendly DC and the Office of the Deputy Mayor of Health and Human Services as a Maharam Foundation STEAM Fellow, I worked to apply universal design theory and user research findings to the initiative’s output and to streamline their operations.
I collaborated with the Age-Friendly DC Task Force, an interagency committee, to establish the “Age-Friendly DC Five Year Progress Report to the World Health Organization.” For the Housing and Outdoor Spaces & Buildings portions of the report, I lead the committee in evaluating the city’s progress and wrote these two of ten chapters, in addition to editing the entire 100+ page report. I was also tasked with designing the report in alignment with the administration’s style guide and existing Age-Friendly DC iconography.
I designed promotional materials for Age-Friendly DC and presentation materials for the World Health Organization, in combination with Age-Friendly DC, to present at the 2017 International Gerontology Conference. Additionally, I lead the DC branch of the American Institute of Architects in brainstorming sessions to devise solutions that would allow more portions of DC’s older adults to age in place.
