About this event

Figuring out how to frame the problem(s) to be solved is a critical early step in the design process. Three design experts will address this critical step as applied to healthcare.

About the Speakers:

Elizabeth Churchill joins us to talk about some personal perspectives on the potential for application, technology and service design in the arena of health and wellbeing.
