Designing better housing for seniors

Rodiek accepts Seniors Housing Care
Journal Award from NIC in Chicago



Susan Rodiek, assistant professor of architecture at Texas A&M University, received a first place award from the Seniors Housing & Care Journal for her research on outdoor spaces for older adults.

The journal chose Rodiek’s paper, “A Missing Link: Can Enhanced Outdoor Space Improve Seniors Housing?” as the recipient of “The GE Award for Best Research Paper.” The award was complimented with a $4,500 cash prize which has been donated to the Center for Health Systems & Design to initiate a design for aging scholarship.

Rodiek personally accepted the award during the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing and Care Industry National Investment Center conference in Chicago on September 28th. The National Investment Center is a resource to anyone interested in addressing the housing and healthcare needs of the American senior population.
