Measured.design is a research initiative launched by DSI, for the purpose of measuring the difference social design makes on human health. It began as a symposium two years ago, in which leaders in healthcare, design, philanthropy and business came together to compare measurement experiences and begin a dialog about how design’s benefits can be quantified. Now, with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Measured.design will launch a site with learning from a deeper dive into thirty one examples of social design in application. The purpose of the new site is to provide an overview of what social design is, where it applies, how it is situated within overlapping approaches, and insights learned from these investigations. Anne LaFond of John Snow, Inc is a partner in the project. The advisory board, seen below at a December 14th meeting includes Joan Barlow from RWJF, Maggie Breslin, Caroline McAndrews, Anne LaFond, Tracy Johnson from the Gates Foundation, Rosanne Haggerty, founder of Community Solutions, Michelle Risinger from PACT, and Cheryl Heller from DSI.
