Fostering Greater Use of Digital Health Technology for Healthier Moms and Families

Project Details

Client:   Public Health Institute
Date:     July 2017
Skills:    Writing, Graphic Design

The Public Health Institute and the Helen Wallace Center for Maternal and Child Health at U.C. Berkeley partnered together on a project to explore the dynamics that affect the adoption and use of digital health tools, particularly among first-time pregnant women and mothers caring for children under the age of five.

I was brought on to lead a short storyboarding session with the project team and then develop the story of their work and research findings. My work included both the writing of the story for this project and designing and laying out the visuals employed to enhance the story, including the infographic that you see in the completed project. The project uses an interactive, data-driven platform called LiveStories to tell the story in a more compelling and engaging manner, with built-in, data-display functionality that my project partner, Amy Max, programmed to help bring the story points to life.
