Designing for Global Health: A Social Innovation Conversation with Anne LaFond of John Snow Inc. (JSI)

04.26.2019 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us for a conversation with Anne LaFond of JSI on human-centered design in global health and to explore opportunities for research and practical experience. This event is hosted by Dr. Alessandra Bazzano, a Professor of Social Entrepreneurship and faculty in Global Community Health and Behavioral Sciences (GCHB) at Tulane’s School of Public Health.

This will be an informal gathering with graduate students, undergraduate students, faculty, and staff who are interested in public health and social design, especially design thinking for innovation, and evaluation of behavior change using human centered design for global health.

Anne LaFond is co-author of several evaluation studies on applications of design thinking in global health settings, such as pilot projects in Ghana– the Care Community Hub introduced a smartphone app to improve health worker motivation and job satisfaction among community health nurses and their supervisors; and in Sierra Leone– the Essential Newborn Care Corps aimed to transform the role of traditional birth attendants from community midwives to maternal newborn health promoters. You can learn more about how JSI is applying human-centered design for public health. 

Social Innovation Conversations are ways to “discover” the field of social innovation. Presenters share findings from research, insights about research methodologies, and musings about how social innovation relates to their scholarly work. Expect an interactive presentation and rich conversation with panelists and other attendees.
