Matt Kenyon: Design Thinking Bootcamp for Health


Stamps Associate Professor Matt Kenyon, with Dr. Joyce Lee, recently led Design Thinking Bootcamp for Health, a multidisciplinary workshop focused on using human-centered design thinking to develop healthcare solutions for the future. 

75 participants from eight U‑M departments attended the workshop, presented in collaboration with School of Information Ehrenberg Director of Entrepreneurship Nancy Benovich Gilby and featuring opening remarks by School of Information Dean Tom Finholt.

Students in Kenyon’s video game design class are working with a team of collaborators to design a series of serious games that plug into the UMHS system.

The workshop’s sponsor, HealthDe​signBy​.Us, is a collaborative of patients and caregivers, healthcare providers and researchers, designers and artists, engineers and technologists, public health professionals and community members, who are passionate about patient-centered participatory design and infusing the maker movement into healthcare.
