HC3 webinar explores human-centered design

Author: Health Communication Capacity Collaborative | July 6, 2017

This June 27, 2017, webinar introduced human-centered design (HCD), an approach to problem solving that prioritizes empathy, actively engaging end-users, providers and other stakeholders throughout the development process. HCD incorporates an understanding of the motivations and incentives that drive human behavior, including cultural and social norms, into designing solutions that are aligned with the end-user and offer lasting impact.

This online event is the sixteenth in HC3’s innovation webinar series, designed to spotlight a broad range of health communication innovations while providing a meaningful mix of theory and practical examples.

The webinar was moderated by:
