Healthy construction and development focus of April 11 AIA lecture 
Richard Jackson, M.D., of the University of California-Berkley, will present "Why good design is better than an apple a day" on Wednesday, April 11 at 7 p.m. in the Durham Research Center. As concerns grow about global warming, obesity and the way Americans use natural resources, Dr. Jackson will show how shaping our physical environment can help society become healthier. Dr. Jackson's lecture is sponsored by UNMC and the Nebraska chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in celebration of the AIA's 150th anniversary. All employees and students are invited to attend. Before the lecture, Dr. Jackson will sign copies of the book, "Urban Sprawl and Public Health," which he co-authored with Howard Frumkin and Lawrence Frank.
