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.

Featuring distinguished lecturer Ryan Moser of CHS Corporation, a National Model of Excellence
Led by the multi-county Central Florida Commission on Homelessness, leaders in the region are working towards a new model for housing the homeless that has significantly reduced chronic and family homelessness in the cities and regions where it has been implemented.
Learn about this new way of "Rethinking Homelessness" from local experts Andrae Bailey and Shelley Lauten, and our keynote speaker Ryan Moser of CSH Corp whose organizational mission is to advance solutions that use housing as a platform for services to improve the lives of the most vulnerable people of a community, maximize public resources and build healthy communities.
Ryan Moser has developed models, initiatives, and policy for active substance users, mental health alternatives to incarceration, justice reinvestment, community corrections, veterans, and housing interventions for families with criminal justice involvement, and high utilizers of systems including pay for success. As Managing Director for the Eastern Region, Mr. Moser provides leadership and coordination for the agency's work throughout the eastern United States and teams deployed in New England, Greater New York, the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast as they work to expand CSH's impact. Prior to this role, Ryan was a part of the CSH New York team, leading its involvement with the Returning Home Initiative, a national effort to develop supportive housing opportunities for people involved with the criminal justice system who also experienced homelessness and chronic health and social challenges. Before starting at CSH, Mr. Moser worked with Women's Prison Association and served in the American Peace Corps, obtaining experience in multicultural education, curriculum design, linguistics, and international development. Ryan has a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Richmond and a Master of Education from Penn State University.
