How can design improve public health? When does ‘nudge theory’ work best, or is there evidence that in-your-face imagery does the trick?

From interaction design and behavioural economics to visual communication and medical humanities, we’ll look at new trends in public health that utilise creative thinking to get their message across, change behaviours, and improve health and wellbeing.

Dil Wickremasinghe, of Newstalks' Global Village, will be speaking with Catherine Darker, Trinity College Dublin Health Psychologist, Pete Lunn, economist and Senior Research Officer at The Economic and Social Research Institutue and Frank Long, Director of design consultancy Frontend, will be discussing the design of public health interventions and medical device designs that ignite behavoiur change and improve public health. Find out if the future of public health is design-focused.
