Creative Tensions: Who Owns Your Health?

Who is responsible for keeping us healthy? Provocative questions about responsibility, control, and power are being vigorously debated as models of health care are redesigned, prevention gains cachet, and the roles of individual behavior, advocacy, public policy, and government responsibility are weighed. Creative Tensions is a conversation that moves, one in which participants reveal where they stand on an issue by where they stand in the room. Guided by a moderator, Creative Tensions is an eye-opening experience that embodies three essential dimensions of human-centered design—reflection, empathy, and curiosity.
