I enjoy speaking at design and innovation conferences (TedX Detroit, Cusp Conference, Stanford Medicine X), healthcare/academic centers (Kaiser Permanente Care Management Institute, Brown, Vanderbilt, Harvard, Stanford), federal agencies (Food and Drug Administration) and regional/national/international healthcare conferences (Detroit Healthcare Leaders Forum, American Diabetes Association, American Association of Diabetes Educators, Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting, World Diabetes Congress). 

My talks focus on two general themes:

  1. The Intersection of Design, the Maker Movement, and Healthcare: Despite the fact that we are now living in the golden age of design, inside the culture of healthcare, the term "design" is foreign and unfamiliar, and most design is completely unintentional.  Human-centered design is critical for the redesign of healthcare tools, technologies, and systems, and participatory design by patients and caregivers as co-creators will be crucial for the transformation. I also talk about the importance of the maker movement as a model for encouraging patient-centered participatory design within healthcare.
     
  2. Social Media for Patients and Healthcare Professionals: Social media is changing the future of healthcare. Patients are using social media to find peer support and information, disseminate health interventions, and make scientific discoveries in rare diseases. Meanwhile, healthcare providers are wary of social media and how to participate and interact online.  I discuss the importance of social media for the future of medicine and provide some practical advice for health care professionals (from medical students, residents, faculty, social workers, teachers, nurses, to educators) about how to use the medium for health education, research dissemination, and professional development. 

I also conduct workshops to provide hands-on training for health professionals on design thinking and social media. For more information about these workshops see the Design and Social Media sections of my website. Please reach out at joyclee@med.umich.edu for speaking/workshop engagements.
