How do you make Story+Structure do its magic? 
Nursing and human-centered design are synergistic. I bring the health promotion lens to design. As a nurse and scientist, I have a social contract with society to act responsibly and be mindful of public trust, to protect, promote and optimize health, to view each individual and community holistically and to understand how environment affects health.
