Her presentation focuses on how healthcare associated infections are changing the safety and financial factors for hospitals and how construction contributes to healthcare acquired infections and adds risk to the project. The presentation strives to teach how we as design professionals can meet healthcare organizational goals. Marlene Linders is the President and CEO of PHILDERS GROUP INTERNATIONAL INC., a healthcare consulting firm. She holds a degree in architecture, nursing science and a Master’s degree in science for clinical psychology. She has been a long time member of ASHRAE, a National Speaker on Infectious Diseases, and one of two women in the USA that are Distinguished Lecturers for ASHRAE.

In addition to one Professional Development Hour, this presentation will also satisfy one CE hour for GBCI and 1 LU/HSU for AIA. Please encourage all LEED Accredited Professionals and AIA Licensed Architects to RSVP and attend.
