HH Halifax: Design Thinking Café & Workshop
June 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at Hacking Health Halifax:
Design Thinking Café & Workshop on June 22
Be a part of the first Hacking Health chapter in Atlantic Canada!
Hacking Health Cafés are informal meetups to discuss and debate digital health topics – where people and ideas mingle.
Hacking Health aims to transform healthcare by connecting healthcare professionals with designers, developers, innovators and entrepreneurs to build realistic, human-centric solutions to front-line healthcare problems.
We’ll be hosting cafés and workshops leading up to a weekend hackathon in November 2016.
Who should attend? Anyone is welcome, so long as you have a passion for innovation and a willingness to share your expertise. Health professionals, hackers and makers, entrepreneurs and innovators – everyone can contribute!
Our Hacking Health Halifax launch café took place in April, drawing at least 150 healthcare professionals, IT specialists, developers, programmers, entrepreneurs, and patients to the IWK Health Centre’s Goldbloom Pavilion! Together, we welcomed Luc Sirois, founder of Hacking Health, alongside an expert panel. We thank all of you for this success!
This time, we’re ready to take a hands-on approach at the June Café & Workshop. During a facilitated session, we’ll challenge you to identify key healthcare challenges in multi-disciplinary groups. Together, we’ll learn a repeatable, design thinking process that can be used leading up to and during the hackathon weekend. As always, this session is admission-free. Of course, we’ll save time at the start and finish of the design thinking session to mix, mingle and meet new people!
