Student Leaders: 
Saisanjana Kalagara, MD21; Jess Hile, Maya Singh
Faculty Adviser: 
Ravi Sarpatwari

The goal of Design+Health is to teach design principles for application to healthcare settings and support student teams in making their projects reality. Final projects may serve as the basis for quality improvement initiatives, research publications, or business ventures. Students will be arranged into groups of three to four, comprised of medical, RISD design, and Brown engineering students. Each group will identify a healthcare challenge that can be resolved through design, culminating in a final presentation of concepts integrating design + health.
