Dell Med Grand Rounds: Provoking Health Systems Through Design

Location: Zoom

Date: Friday, October 22, 2021

Time: 11–12 p.m.

Contact: Charlotte Harris

About the Event

Please join us for the next installment of Dell Med Grand Rounds, featuring Stacey Chang presenting “Provoking Health Systems Through Design.” Chang is the founder and executive director of the Design Institute for Health. A recognized leader in his field, Chang is a designer, an unintentional academic and a champion for fresh approaches to solving age-old dilemmas in health.

During the event, Chang will reframe health and health care through a system dynamics lens, describe how the discipline of design acts on complex systems, and ask us to consider human aspirations that existing health systems struggle to address. A deeper appreciation of these factors helps to establish the foundation from which we evolve our current system into new models of health replicable across our community and beyond.

Register in advance to receive Zoom information. Email Denice Richard if you have questions.
