Interaction Design Initiative Lecture: Maggie Breslin
Maggie Breslin is a designer and researcher with a unique focus in health care, although she does work in other fields, as well. She pioneered the role of designer/researcher at Mayo Clinic’s Center for Innovation when she joined in 2005 and helped build the program until she left in 2011 to establish her own practice. Breslin leads research, design, and development efforts around topics as diverse as decision-making, risk communication, integrated practice models, remote care, caregiving, and minimally disruptive medicine. She believes strongly that good conversation is key to transforming health-care delivery and champions this idea in all her work. She has logged many hours observing and talking to patients and clinicians and counts those opportunities as among her most treasured.
Breslin teaches in the Design for Social Innovation and Interaction Design programs at the School of Visual Arts in New York. She has published in journals ranging from Design Issues to Archives of Internal Medicine and had a previous life in film/television/animation/motion graphics, where she learned how to tell stories. Breslin holds a Master of Design (MDes) from Carnegie Mellon University and a BS in Mass Communications, Film and Television from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio.
