ULI has selected 26 professionals in real estate development, planning, design, engineering, finance, and health care from across the United States to participate in the second cohort of the ULI Health Leaders Network, a program designed to empower real estate and land use professionals with the skills, knowledge, and networks to improve health outcomes in their professional practice and communities.
