Listen in while designers slash healthcare entrepreneurs,
Tina Park and Miya Osaki, share their revelries and
wrongdoings of running a business.
Things are about to get weird.
In healthcare, how can you truly understand how people will use a product or service when humans are unpredictable, health is difficult to manage, and you don’t know always what the end product or service should be?
In order to understand human behavior, and all the idiosyncrasies that go along with it (peanut butter and mayo sandwiches, anyone?), you need to find inventive ways to conduct research. Tune in for Episode 27 to learn about the unconventional methods that M + T have developed over the years – such as interactive interviews and experiential prototyping – to uncover more meaningful insights about humans and their health.
We’re halfway through Season 3! Join us for the “check in” episode where Miya and Tina cover three topics they’re interested in right now: inclusivity in clinical trials, women in leadership, and a revisit of the privacy conversation from Episode 23– this time with a small glimmer of hope.
What are you waiting for?! Tap that play button, and tune in for a rousing game of Yah vs. No, a subtle tweak to the show intro, and some important shout outs to leaders who are working hard to make positive change.

Patients are used to the healthcare industry treating the mind and the body as two completely different systems, but Tina and Miya know from their work in chronic disease, that mental and physical health are inextricably linked.
Join us for episode 25, as Miya and Tina meditate, share tips on interview techniques and relay research strategies that break down the stigma around mental health. They discuss how having a sensitivity toward the research engenders trust, allowing patients to open up and explore difficult topics such as depression, anxiety, and stress.
