Good Health by Design a Clever and Creative Lecture

Deakin DesignMind and the City of Greater Geelong invite you to the second lecture in the Clever and Creative Lecture Series for 2019: Good Health by Design

Transdisciplinary design culture has the potential to improve outcomes across the globe, optimising responses to growing health challenges such as ageing populations, inactivity and poor diets.

At this lecture, Deakin is also launching disruptr, a research-centred communications platform, and a new podcast series ‘Change One Thing’. Inspired by Deakin’s breadth of expertise, disruptr encourages conversation by highlighting the impact of Deakin’s research and the potential it holds for the future.
