Health Literacy: Out of the Haze and Into your DMs
How might we foster an inspiring and supportive environment to combat teen vaping addiction over Instagram DMs? In 2019, 28% of high school students reported vaping in the past month, up 7% from the year prior. More than 5 million youth reported having used e-cigarettes in the past 20 days, and nearly 1 million reported daily use. It is no secret that teen vaping is an epidemic. There is a clear need to give engaging, meaningful support to teens who are addicted to nicotine through vaping, many of whom would actually like to stop but have few options for where to go for help. Instagram DMs offer the opportunity to meet teens who vape where they already are, in readiness and in social nature, to deliver evidence-based treatment to engage young vapers looking to quit. In this session learn how Hopelab, behavior change strategists at Rescue Agency , and scientists at the University of California San Francisco partnered to design an intervention not just for teens, but with teens. Introduced by Senior Director of Research, Dr. Danielle Ramo, Design Lead Robin Hayashi, will share the process of creating a unique prototype on Instagram to support and engage young vapers looking to quit through Instagram DMs. They will share how this prototype was inspired by a well-tested smoking-cessation intervention model on Facebook that provided a clinical foundation for an engaging, empathetic, and human-centered program to help teens quit vaping. They will talk through the opportunities and challenges of designing a supportive environment with a true human touch in a digital space ripe with patient opportunity. What assumptions were challenged in the process of designing for a new generation of nicotine users, who are grappling with the unique stressors of adolescence in 2020? Listen to what we learned about co-creating every step of the way with our partners and end users, in order to design a clear supportive path to quit vaping.

Health Literacy: Designing for Taboo Topics as a Step Towards Holistic Health and Well-Being
Taboos are like ‘’open public secrets’’ and often dealing with these topics can be challenging due to the negative societal view. However, taboos can have a strong impact on the well-being of people, therefore, addressing these subjects is of high importance. In my talk I would share seven building blocks to design for taboo topics. These blocks were identified during my master thesis desk and field research project on the taboo of menstruation in India. Menstruation is a taboo that is prevalent worldwide, but in the low and middle income countries such as India, it has an even stronger negative impact on the lives of women. It is a subject that women deal with in secrecy and shame, often without involving men into the subject. However, India is a patriarchal country where men have a direct impact on the lives of women and the way women conduct their periods. Though efforts do exist to deal with the issue of menstruation, none so far have a focus on the stigma and shame that prevent from dealing with the subject openly. Through the talk I would describe the seven building blocks by showcasing them through my project on menstruation.

Health Literacy: Seeing the System to Catalyze Collaboration: The Design in Health Landscape
Taking the nod from scientific collaboration across the globe in lightning speed COVID-19 vaccine development, we see the urgent need to break out of the deadly silos that scatter the impacts of design in health.

Quality Improvement is a well-documented discipline and has progressed inter-institutionally due to agreed upon norms and nomenclature. However, Design as a discipline is not measured and progressed within the domains of health and well-being in the same manner. Disparate groups, multi-stakeholder initiatives, communities of practice, graduate education programs, and incorporated organizations exist within this nascent domain, but to date no effort has been made to visually represent their relatedness and the distinctions between them.

At the Design Institute for Health within Dell Medical School, we have created a prototype map of the design in health space, which we invite participants to co-create with us. This map illustrates the landscape of change agent organizations and highlights collaborative opportunities for shaping new paths forward in how people get and stay healthy. We seek to leverage this map and its co-creation process to create momentum to formalize our practice, provoke conversations, bring cohesion to the field, and catalyze change.

Today’s unprecedented times require radical collaboration. We must broaden our view of collaboration beyond our organizations and partnerships to collaborate widely across the entire domain of design in health. The initiatives, institutes and organizations seeking systemic change in health through design must build interconnectedness and collaboration to truly revolutionize well-being.
