Washington, D.C. — Feb. 26, 2015 — The Lake Nona Institute has joined the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) in its 2014 Clinton Global Initiative America (CGI America) Commitment to Action to develop the ASID Protocols for Health and Wellness in Design.

The Lake Nona Institute is the 12th organization to sign on to the three-year ASID commitment to develop integrated education and technology tools that help design professionals create healthier spaces through smarter building design and construction. 

“The Lake Nona Institute is at the leading edge of developing a holistic approach to health and wellness in our communities,” said ASID CEO Randy Fiser. “As a partner in developing the ASID Protocols for Health and Wellness in Design, they offer their Lake Nona facilities that will enable us to test and refine the protocols we are developing.”

The Lake Nona Institute is a nonprofit, community-focused organization that develops, activates, and measures the impact of innovative technologies and programs that can become global models for building healthy, sustainable, and inspired communities.

As a partner in the ASID CGI America Commitment to Action, the Lake Nona Institute will provide venues throughout the Lake Nona community and Lake Nona Medical City to demonstrate and pilot health and wellness design protocols within the context of an integrated community.

“In collaboration with our CGI partners, The Lake Nona Institute is committed to accelerating the planning, design, and construction of healthier living and working spaces by using Lake Nona facilities as test beds and models for healthy design,” said Gloria Caulfield, director of Health & Wellness for the Lake Nona Institute.

Lake Nona Institute announced joining the CGI America Commitment to Action during the Lake Nona Impact Forum, held Feb. 25-27 at Lake Nona Medical City in Orlando, Fla.

Lake Nona is a 7,000-acre integrated community, which is home to one of the fastest-growing life sciences clusters in the nation, and serves as a model for the design of a comprehensive, healthy community.

The Lake Nona Impact Forum annually brings together more than 250 thought leaders from business, academia, government, and industry sectors that are driving creative, innovative health and wellness solutions to move the needle on healthcare expenditures nationally and globally.
