Join me in conversation with Dr Susan Rodiek, associate professor in the department of architecture at Texas A&M university and faculty fellow at the Center for Health Facilities and Design. She has many notable achievements including national and international awards for her research-based education programs. In this episode, you'll hear about Dr Rodiek's award-winning collaborative video education series titled Access To Nature: Planning Outdoor Spaces for Aging.

You’re currently listening to Part 1, where we’ll learn a bit about Dr Rodiek’s professional journey, hear about her research and how essential it is for humans to have access to the nature, and learn about an video education tool she created called Access To Nature: Planning Outdoor Spaces for Aging.

In Part 2 we’ll wrap up the interview, and I have a bit of fun on my own expanding on an easy to use assessment tool that was mentioned in our discussion, the SOS Tool (or the Seniors Outdoor Survey). Stay tuned!
