RDG’s Doug Lamson Selected to Participate in Urban Land Institute’s Health Leaders Network

Established to facilitate collaboration across multiple industries, ULI’s Health Leaders Network empowers participants with actionable knowledge on development and design strategies to improve health, well-being and social equity.

RDG Planning & Design announced today that Doug Lamson, PLA, ASLA has been selected to participate in the fifth cohort of the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Health Leaders Network. Lamson, who joined RDG as a landscape architect and project manager in 2021 and is based in the firm’s Denver office, will serve as part of a select group of 29 professionals in real estate development, planning, design, engineering, finance and public health from across the globe.

“Having worked in the design and planning field for 40 years, Doug has a wealth of knowledge about how the built environment impacts users,” said RDG Principal and President Justin Platts, PLA, ASLA, LEED AP. “We’re proud to support his involvement in the Health Leaders Network and believe the knowledge he acquires from the program will only deepen RDG’s ability to design spaces that improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve.”

ULI’s Health Leaders Network is designed to empower real estate and land use professionals with the skills, knowledge and networks to improve health and equity outcomes in their professional practice and communities. Participants gain valuable skills, make connections and develop practical knowledge about the intersection between health, social equity and the built environment.

“Park design has always introduced new activities and engagement opportunities that promote physical fitness in a familiar and comfortable setting, but the topics of health and equity have become especially relevant over the last three years,” said Lamson. “By participating in the Health Leaders Network, I’ll be able to take the specialized knowledge gained, communicate it with my RDG colleagues and ultimately apply it in ways that improve both public health and social equity.”
