HC3 webinar: human-centered design

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.
