January 11 + 12, Workshop hosted by Art Center team
After planning some work sessions, making avatars for all the participants, and buying an iDog door prize, we opened our doors to all of the team members from around the country. These are the people who will be involved in our project. Some are consulting and others are directly involved with the teens we are conducting research with, and Moto is our technology partner.
DOGNOD, the Design Research Team, Spring 2007: Sean Donahue, Laura Janisse, Kim Miller, Lisa Nugent, Hannah Regier, Tina Park, Peter Shultz, and Phil van Allen
CHOC: Diane Nugent, M.D.
STANFORD: Peter Chira, M.D.
MOTO: Daniell Hebert
GENETIC ALLIANCE: James O’Leary
CULTURAL PARTNERSHIPS: Claudia Petruccio
UNIVERSITY OF UTAH: Steven Hunt, M.D.
RESEARCH CONSULTANT: Marie-Helene Yalom
Highlights of the two day event included Lisa’s presentation of our project outline. She included a youTube video of a projected skateboarder cruising above the store facades of Rotterdam. The skater is now our key inspirational mascot. “What if health records could follow you around as effortlessly as the skater?” We also got to watch Lisa nod as a dog as she introduced our studio name, DOGNOD.
We learned about “binder moms” from Diane — the moms of patients who bring binders of health information with them to appointments. Peter Chira said he asked his patients if they would be interested in meeting other teens with Juvenile Arthritis. He got a resounding yes. So we are thinking about networking possibilities for our population.
Kim Miller won the iDog for her encyclopedic knowledge of the OC and other teen related knowledge.
