The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) 44 Conference, “Healthy and Healing Places” was held in Providence, RI, May 29-June 1, 2013, co-sponsored by Roger Williams University and the Rhode Island Department of Health. The national conference was attended by more than 500 participants, and co-chaired by Eleftherios Pavlides, Professor of Architecture, and Jeremy Wells, Assistant Professor of Historic Preservation. Hosting this conference was a major undertaking for Pavlides and Wells, who were able to attract the conference here through Pavlides long leadership nationally in this organization, and consistent faculty-student research presentations by RWU over 10+ years. Co-hosting the event with the RI Department of Health was another important feature showcasing our engagement with government, and providing relevant scholarship to a statewide audience on one hand, and a national one as well.
