2020 - Present

DSI partners with Montefiore’s Primary Care and Social Internal Medicine (PCSIM) program in the Bronx to explore the intersection of community engagement, environmental health, community wellbeing, and design. DSI is in our 3rd year of collaboration with PCSIM who received an ADA microgrant in 2022 to support co-design with two community-based organizations in the Bronx: Loving the Bronx and Northwest Bronx Clergy and Community Coalition.

Protected Airways Collaborative: Weill Cornell Medical, New York Presbyterian Hospital

2019 - Present

In our partnership with the Protected Airway Collaborative, Weill Cornell has achieved successful multimedia, hands-on “learning installations” with participants of varying experience levels within their hospitals. ER Physician and educator, Dr. Jonathan St. George, has created the Protected Airway Course to transform medical education by using design to better translate complex knowledge in healthcare and amplify the innovation behind the project, beyond traditional silos in medical education. DSI students participate in learning installations with Weill Cornell Medical to codesign and iterate design interventions that enhance experience-based learning for medical students.
