Design for Health

“As a former patient navigating the healthcare system, I know that current experiences are suboptimal and that patients and caregivers are not always invited to engage in transformational change. My goal is to leverage patient, caregiver and provider expertise through a design thinking lens, to enhance wellbeing across journeys of care. Let's work together to improve our healthcare system. ”
