    Design for Health Equity: Lessons from health literacy -- Dr Lee Sanders 01 Feb 2023, 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

    Venue: Hybrid: Ella Latham Auditorium and Online via Zoom


    This Grand Round will consider how human-centered design, applied to the health system and informed by a health-literacy framework, may help advance health equity.  We will review evidence that includes inter-disciplinary scholarship (e.g., behavioral science, computer science, clinical epidemiology) in the areas of obesity prevention, promoting school readiness, chronic-illness management and the care of children with special health care needs. We will consider the application of new artificial intelligence tools, such as human-computer interaction and computer vision, to achieve these ends. Finally, we will discuss a vision and infrastructure for a “Health Equity Action in Research Design” (HEARD) Collective, which will bring together rigorous research, health-system leaders and “patients as co-designers” to create, implement and test new solutions that aim to address intransigent health inequities.
