The Journey

Chris Waugh

Through his perspective as a design innovator, Chris Waugh sees health care systems in whole person terms and believes good design happens when empathy, creativity and community converge. Relating these principles to the end of life journey, he maps it along physical, intellectual and emotional dimensions to reveal how we might better treat dying as a part of living.
