CARPE EPI: Designing The Campus Food Allergy Experience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The College Anaphylaxis Response Preparedness and Epinephrine Access Study

(CARPE) is currently underway at Northwestern University.  Join Dr. Ruchi Gupta and graduate students from the MS, Engineering Design Innovation program to review and test the interventions they are designing to raise awareness of anaphylaxis and increase access to epinephrine on college campuses.

Dr. Gupta and the students will share barriers students entering college face and possible solutions. Our team has been interviewing key stakeholders and prototyping interventions to improve the day to day experience of students with food allergies on college campuses.  We¹re looking at key touchpoints of campus life, including: the transition to campus, new student orientation, emergencies in the dining hall, campus teams and clubs, and large campus events and festivals.  As human-centered designers, we believe in the power of collaborative design.

Please come share your experiences, insights and critique.  We look forward to designing the campus Food Allergy Experience together!
