Evening Rounds: RECAP

Evening Rounds is a free monthly speaker series profiling health care communications research & speakers! November's Evening Round was presented by UBC PhD candidate Ana Crisan on data visualization. Ana discussed the strengths and weaknesses of visualizing data and applied it to visualizing patient risk.
Data Visualization was broken down into 3 steps: What-Why-How.

  1. What? (Data): What kind of data is being visualized?
  2. Why? (Motivation):  why do you need to visualize data?
  3. How? (Visual and Interaction Design): How is data being visualized?

Check out the Evening Rounds website for a complete event summary, including quick tips for designing data and visualizing patient risk.
