ECFRPC’s Daphne Green is the third ECFRPC staff person selected for the highly competitive network and is the only leader from Florida in this cohort
Orlando, Florida (March 16, 2023) - Last year, the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council’s Michelle Morrison was selected to join the highly competitive Urban Land Institute’s Health Leaders Network, becoming the second ECFRPC team member to join the prestigious network. The ECFRPC now has the distinct honor of announcing that a third team member has been invited to join this highly coveted network. Daphne Green, AICP, will be in the next class when the ULI Health Network convenes next month. This sixth cohort includes just thirty professionals from across the globe who have demonstrated their expertise in real estate development, planning, design, engineering, finance, community engagement, and public health. Green is the only leader from Florida in this cohort.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our team and Daphne Green for this achievement. The fact that we now have three members in such a prestigious network is a testament to the quality of expertise that the ECFRPC team offers our region and state,” explained ECFRPC Executive Director Tara McCue. “This unprecedented third team member in the network will allow for even more localized actions in addressing health vulnerabilities. I know I speak for our entire team in congratulating Daphne on receiving this honor.”
Green joined the ECFRPC in 2020 after working in the Tampa Bay region. Holding a Master’s in Urban Planning from Florida State University, Green specializes in housing and health planning. At the ECFRPC, Green has worked to provide coordination and support to our partners around the region’s housing issues and has served as the community liaison for the newly created East Central Florida Brownfields program within the ECFRPC’s Economic Development department.
“I can’t wait to learn from the nation’s leading groups how to best address the health and housing issues affecting our region and nation. This opportunity will help ensure our region remains competitive, welcoming, and appealing for all current and future residents,” notes Green.
The ULI Health Network Cohort Six launched this month with an in-person meeting in Washington, D.C. scheduled for the end of March. Both Daphne Green and Michelle Morrison will present on their ULI Health Network experience at an upcoming ECFRPC Council meeting.
