Tama Duffy Day – Healthy Design, Aging with Grace ‘in-place’ and Ikigai; Finding Your Purpose at Every Age

Tama Duffy Day works at Gensler as a firmwide leader within the health sector. Gensler is a global architecture, design, and planning firm with 49 locations across the world. In a career in design that spans more than three decades, Tama’s expertise in health ranges from projects in academic medical centers to community hospitals and senior living. As a frequent advocate for the benefits of generative space, Tama is dedicated to raising awareness of the impact that design has on health and longevity, and she is a global advocate for older adults. Tama is focused on representing the positive side of aging in her work and is looking to eliminate bias in every industry.

Today, Tama joins me on the podcast to talk about healthy design, generative spaces, aging with grace, and the importance of finding your purpose at every stage and age in life. She shares her input on the power of inclusion, notes the benefits of aging, and talks about her fears and her plan to overcome them.

“The more I learn, the more I recognize I really don’t know much.”
