A collaborative event for a local and virtual community passionate about health, technology, and participatory design. Join us for a full day of health themed design and maker activities for the whole family!
ADMISSION IS FREE
This is an event focused on health, technology, and participatory (patient-centered) design, that will take place at University of Michigan. We are inviting a large diverse community of participants from within and outside the University of Michigan.
The event will be PARTICIPATORY, so although there is an organizing committee, the purpose is for the COMMUNITY to share their personal stories, Do-It-Yourself Technologies, and creations for managing health. We plan to have booths, speakers, and demonstrations. Hit the participate button below if you want to share your work!
We welcome a diverse group of individuals at the event: Patients, Health care Providers, Artists, Designers, Parents, Kids, Techies, Engineers, Makers, Tinkerers, Scientists, Advocates, Researchers, Administrators, Business/Community Partners, Public Health Professionals...YOU?
We are delighted to announce our keynote speakers for the event:
We are also excited to report that we will be holding a screening of "Maker", a feature-length documentary on the Maker Movement and its impact on society, culture and economy in the US during the fest.
We have a jam-packed schedule with a diverse range of speakers and exhibitors! Download it here!

Healthdesignby.us is a community of individuals (patients, doctors, makers, artists, designers, researchers, professors, students, advocates) passionate about health, technology, and participatory design. As a collective, we have been actively involved in a broad range of activities to promote patient-centered design, the use of emerging technologies like mobile technology and social media, and the notion that we as a community (both local and virtual) should be part of the creation and promotion of health. We have been supported by generous awards from the Provost office of the University, the Brehm Investigator's Fund, and the Charles Woodson Research Fund.
