Design Thinking w/ Hacking Health - Healthcare in Detroit

H2SAS is back! We're co-hosting our next event with Hacking Health, an organization that pairs innovators with healthcare experts to build solutions to front-line healthcare problems using emerging technologies. Like our last event, this will be an ideation/brainstorming/problem-solving session focused on a topic relevant to Detroit.

And as you may have guessed - the challenge we'll focus on this time will involve healthcare. More specifically, we'll investigate the current state of primary care in the Motor City and how to improve access to healthcare providers.

This event will be one-hour longer than our last event, allowing us to delve deeper into how to leverage IDEO's Design Thinking methodology. This human-centered approach to problem-solving emphasizes building empathy and gaining a deeper understanding of the problem at hand.

6:00pm: Networking and Food
6:30pm: Members will break out into groups. The groups will be presented with a challenge and the objective/key takeaways of the discussion. We'll frame the conversation using IDEO's Design Thinking framework.
8:30-9pm: Wrap-Up and Q&A

Stay tuned for additional details :)
