The HLA is poised to produce the best health leaders of tomorrow with news ways of thinking and doing. Design thinking is one methodology that the HLA infuses into many of its educational programs and community engagement initiatives – all with an aim to solve health and healthcare challenges in an interdisciplinary way. The HLA’s alumni will facilitate a design thinking workshop this year at the DIHLC, exposing participants to the problem-solving process that involves understanding the perspective(s) of users in order to develop and iterate potential solutions. We hope you can join us for what promises to be an interactive and informative day.
