CHXD Workshop: Accessible Design for Better Patient Engagement

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

Mad*Pow’s Center for Health Experience Design (CHXD) is offering a one-day accessibility workshop for digital teams. Through a mix of presentations and participatory activities, attendees will learn and practice the skills needed to ensure digital sites and services meet the needs of a real-world diverse audience.

Mad*Pow has a deep and broad experience with inclusive accessible design and is able to share our understanding and passion of the subject with in-house teams so that they can execute thoughtful, legally-compliant accessible design going forward. Our designers, technologists, strategists and content creators are all trained in accessibility and committed to helping clients achieve accessible and inclusive results for end users.
