Designing spaces with health outcomes in mind Boston

The annual Connected Health meeting is coming up.  More on that in coming posts. Here we link to one of the groups that will be presenting as part of a panel called “Start Up: Four Entrepreneurs under the Age of 40 Discuss Their Ventures in Consumer Health IT.”

Mass Design Group: MASS creates well-built environments using appropriate design, local investment, and innovation to break the cycle of poverty. We collaborate with governments, NGOs, private sector firms, and health care experts to advocate for the most underserved and provide scalable models of community-based development and training

Design for Health Outcomes

MASS works with a broad range of interdisciplinary partners to better understand the correlation between design and health outcomes. This type of extensive research paves the way for design innovation that produces results like a reduction in the transmission of airborne diseases.
