2019 "Healthy Kitchen Symposium"
The NKBA Manhattan Chapter’s 2019 “Healthy Kitchen” Symposium is an innovative and in-depth discussion dedicated to designing kitchens for balanced living through
through nutrition, psychology, and the built environment.
Presented as a series of three, thought-provoking, programs, our symposium will focus on kitchen design solution for the built environment that can be implemented to improve
human health and well-being.
Following a nutritious lunch, this seminar will be a 3-hour presentation with three separate experts. Each will speak about their area of knowledge for 45 minutes and allow
for questions. One presentation will focus on nutrition and the influence of design in helping our clients to make healthful and nutritious choices.
Another will focus on the built environment and how design can drive our clients
toward better choices, improve comfort, and enhance health and well-being.
The third discussion will look at the services, products, and technological options available
to help us design these healthy spaces. There will be a natural synergy between these three discussions and hopefully some overlap where ideas from one discussion dovetail nicely with the others.
We're working with Grow NYC utilizing their "Project Farmhouse" public education space in New York City to host the event on Tuesday, June 25th in the afternoon.
