Equity by Design: Designing with Underserved Communities: Ana Téllez

Healthcare is only responsible for a small part of our health; social determinants of health, the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age play a much greater role. Like access to healthcare, access to other resources like employment, housing, education, food, and safety are not equitably distributed at the local, national, and global level. In this track, we will discuss how social and environmental barriers disproportionately affect marginalized communities and how we can begin to impact these determinants through design.
