In 2012, the event focused on the universally designed kitchens at Virginia Tech. Julia Beamish, Department Chair for the Apparel, Housing and Resource Management department, gave a presentation on her team's work in creating and incorporating different elements of universal design in one of the most commonly used rooms across the country, the kitchen. Attendees were then given a personalized tour of the Center for Real Life Kitchen Design by Beamish and her students.
