Hi, I'm Doctor as Designer.

I am a pediatrician and diabetes specialist, researcher, and design thinker. For my thoughts on design and healthcare please see this talk. My #designthinking journey is chronicled below!

Part 1 of my #designthinking journey!

Part 2 of my #designthinking journey!

Part 3 of my #designthinking journey!

I am spearheading the We Make Health Fest on August 16th with some amazing colleagues! Contribute locally or virtually!

I blog about design. Sign up to receive updates here.

Check out some of my posts:
-Redesigning the Patient Medication Experience
-Design is not a department
-Shouldn’t we be blaming the design instead of blaming the patient?
-What can Healthcare Learn from a Nuclear Power Plant?

I love to hang out with designers and play with mobile apps and interactive data visualizations. Check out some activities and blogposts here:
-“The Hidden Talents of Everyday Things”
-Distinguishing the Hype from Reality in Mobile Health
-If an app transmits data on a deserted island does it really exist?
-#Gchat Medicine?

I love social media and Twitter!

Check out my slideshare about Social Media and Academic Medicine for colleagues. I have created social media homework for my talks for:
-Public Health Students
-Research Colleagues
-Design and Innovation Friends

I love to explore the storytelling capabilities of social media for science and research. As social media editor for JAMA Pediatrics, I am exploring the use of Twitter to tell stories about research content, including the "weapons effect", #sinsofauthors in manuscripts, and clinical case reports.

P.S. I know they are rare, but if you are a unicorn interested in health technology, please contact me!
