Design: WTF!? Katie McCurdy: Data Visualization

Visualizing symptoms, sensations and stories

Visuals can help us communicate more efficiently and develop a better mutual understanding – and in healthcare this can be a matter of life or death. In this talk Katie will share her personal experience with symptom and health visualization, investigate trends in how others represent their symptoms and stories, and share insights learned while co-creating detailed health history timelines with other patients.

Today is arguably one of the most exciting times, and let's face it—overwhelming times—to be a designer. From problem-solving in health care to bringing about social change in society, design is exploding and constantly changing. AIGA Vermont is excited to bring a new series focused on these issues and discussions around emerging trends and the future of design. Please join us for monthly talks by local and national design champions to inspire and educate in the areas of social design, healthcare design, game design, exhibit design, government design, UX, AR/VR, and more!
