Description

Design can save your life
How can creativity improve comprehension of health data?

WPP Health & Wellness + Billy Blue College of Design team up to bring data to life at Vivid Ideas 2018.

Interpreting health data is the very basis on which life and death decisions are made. Unfortunately, most medical publications and significant health bodies present data in ways that can be challenging to even the most statistically astute. In fact, 75% of physicians said they couldn’t understand all statistics in medical journals.* So when you and your doctor are making a critical decision based on health data, will it be the best decision?

Join us for this experimental event as part of Vivid Ideas 2018 and see how a team of top design students decoded clinical data on medicinal marijuana in the treatment of epilepsy through smart design thinking. Hear from WPP Health & Wellness’s head of Brain Sciences Centre in London, David Davenport-Firth and our panel of industry professionals on the new era in health data comprehension.
