NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — Vendome Group, publisher of HEALTHCARE DESIGN and Healthcare Building Ideas magazines and producers of the HEALTHCARE DESIGN.09 Conference recently announced the 2009 HEALTHCARE DESIGN Scholarship Program. The program is designed to provide those who are unable to afford the cost of the conference an opportunity to apply for a scholarship covering the full-conference registration fee.
"We believe, as a company and a magazine publisher, that giving back to the industry is important. The Center for Health Design, along with our association partners—the AIA Academy of Architecture for Health, and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID)—provide cutting-edge content. These scholarships will enable more health care and design industry professionals to attend, which will create an even larger, more diverse audience that will help to further the conversation of what will affect the design of health care facilities," says Eric Woods, VP and managing director of Vendome Group.
Vendome Group has committed more than $20,000 in scholarship funds. "In providing roughly $20,000 in scholarship money, we hope to enable young and seasoned professionals alike to attend, and to further their knowledge and impact on the health care industry. With money and budgets being so tight, we truly feel that this is the right thing to do," says Woods.
In 2008, the HEALTHCARE DESIGN Conference attracted more than 300 exhibiting companies and more than 3,600 attendees. This year, the conference will be held at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, in Orlando, Florida, on October 31 - November 3.
