Each year, three of the nation's leading planning experts travel to Orlando to participate in UCF's Urban and Regional Planning Distinguished Lecture Series. The lectures are open to the public and supported by generous contributions from the Central Florida planning community. View past lecture series.
This year the series will focus on finding the intersection of Planning, Health, and Poverty with three separate lectures. The first lecture will provide the groundwork for the next two lectures discussing how planning professionals have the ability to improve the health of community residents through multiple strategies and to mitigate the impacts of poverty on the health of a community.
