Making Health with MakerNurse Create

Presenter

Makers and Health are a match aimed to make together so more people can get better and stay better. Our group took a deep dive into medical making at the American hospital and home bedside for our MakerNurse project and created a set of tools and resources open to anyone who wants to learn and generate a medical maker project. In this panel, a medical maker lab, a public health foundation, and a nurse share MakerNurse Create, an online community that invites makers to contribute their own medical making projects and learn how their contributions can impact bedside care. Join as we hack the black boxes of medical technology to improve health.
