Design Takes on Cancer
April 4 @ 6:00pm - 8:00pm
200 Portland Street, 5th Floor, Boston, MA 02114
No one wants to think about cancer. But it has a large impact on society and a profound impact on individuals and families. About 1.7 M people are diagnosed with it each year in the US. The majority will survive. This session intends to catalyze design innovation that responds to the physical and sensory onslaught of those in treatment and in recovery. Success would deliver improved quality of life and an invaluable restoration of confidence.
