HCIM Students are Innovating for a Healthier and More Inclusive Future
HCIM students at the University of Maryland shared their brilliant products today at the Inclusive Design and Personal Health Informatics & Visualization semester poster presentation. UMD seeks to create an inclusive and healthy world for all of us, celebrating diversity by designing products and solutions that support personal health needs and also create fulfilling experiences for all people.
HCIM graduate students have the opportunity to take part in this initiative by taking our course offerings: Inclusive Design and Personal Health Informatics & Visualization. During these courses, students researched and co-designed solutions with their target users. They then created their own product concepts with interactive prototypes of their solutions. Design is powerful and UMD HCIM students proved that!
