Design Museum Mornings with Rosalyn Cama, CAMA

Numerous studies have confirmed that touch is connected to many therapeutic benefits, including reduced stress as well as improved sleep, memory, and pain management. Even so, Western medicine has been slow to harness its healing and restorative powers. We live in a touch-deprived culture, and unsurprisingly, place more faith in medical machines than hands that heal.

May’s Design Museum Mornings features Rosalyn Cama of CAMA. Rosalyn’s presentation will encourage attendees to consider the human dimension of healing when designing medical spaces, explore the remarkable sense of touch and learn how to harness its healing powers within the built environment. Join us on the morning of May 12 at TRO starting at 8:30 am for an insightful morning complete with audience Q&A, breakfast, and coffee from High Brew, sponsored by IoA and RepSource.

Doors open at 8:30 am; Presentation begins at 9:00 am.
