Installing a healing totem is a big job and it takes many players to cover all the bases. We’ve been working on these from first concepts, through engineering and landscape design to near completion for almost 11 months now. We’re 15 weeks out from the installation in October and the design for the plaza, lighting, and support for the totem are at 95% completion! This near final round has gone up through various levels of review and approval at NIH, and is moving into contracting. We’re on our way to making a concept a reality!
