Information Design for the Common Good | Lunch & Learn
Aug 8 @ 12:15 pm – 1:45 pm
Information Design for the Common Good | Lunch & Learn @ Boardroom, Dahdaleh Institute Offices

Designers are increasingly involved in the world of social good. Traditionally installed in commercial sectors, they are now collaborating with scientists, researchers and others non-designers with their own knowledge-base and processes. These interdisciplinary encounters are often new, exciting and challenging.

Drawing on her experiences of this phenomenon, and on the research behind her upcoming book Information Design for the Common Good, Courtney Marchese will lead a Lunch & Learn on interdisciplinary design collaboration in global health.

Courtney Marchese is a professional designer with over a decade of experience specializing in data visualizations, information graphics, UX design, and usability studies. She is also an Associate Professor of Graphic + Interactive Design, teaching a wide range of design theory, research, and technical skills at the undergraduate and graduate level.

James Orbinski Special Presentation at the 5th Annual Health Innovation Summit
Feb 26 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
James Orbinski Special Presentation at the 5th Annual Health Innovation Summit @ Canada 2020 Studio

Policymakers across all political stripes and jurisdictions are being confronted with the realities of a health system under immense pressure - the sustainability of which is being challenged by a growing and aging population.

Charting that path to sustainability has been the core concern of the Canada 2020 Health Innovation Summit. Now in its fifth year, the Summit will look at how advancements in technology and investments in innovation help improve health outcomes and reduce costs.

This year, we will also be analyzing the ways in which these advancements interact with the implementation of a Pharmacare plan.

Bringing together key representatives from across the health system (federal and provincial policymakers, hospital executives, patient advocates, industry leaders and researchers), the Canada 2020 Health Innovation Summit will be structured around keynotes, presentations, panel discussions and networking.

Registration is now open. Early bird prices available until January 31st, 2020
