Transitioning from cure to care systems.
The Health and Wellness Design Lab is an interdisciplinary research and teaching group. Our research explores how design can improve health and wellness on an individual to a societal scale, and transition from cure to care systems. We study these relationships and develop tools to empower community members, health workers, organizations, governments, and others to confront complex questions related to health and support social and physical infrastructure for a healthier world. Our aim is to enhance equity, justice, and dignity of people, building a culture of health and wellness through the design of products, environments, and services. We are affiliated with the Center for Design at Northeastern University, Northeastern University’s Institute for Health Equity and Social Justice Research, the NuLawLab at Northeastern’s School of Law, and Politecnico di Milano. Our projects have received funding from: Google, The Kresge Foundation’s Arts & Culture Program, National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
