There is a growing body of research that links sound to human health. The role of acoustic design in healthcare facilities is crucial in creating health, comfort and privacy. Join moderators Patricia DeMuyt and Andrew Schmidt of the USG Architectural & Building Science Teams as they moderate an expert panel of designers, architects, planners and consultants in a discussion on the future of healthcare, acoustics, and architecture.
