Sydney BernsteinService Design, Healthcare, Design Research


Growing up, Sydney always knew that she wanted to work in the healthcare field as she's intrigued by the complex problems faced by everyday people. Recognizing the desire to tackle these issues, Sydney is studying design innovation as a way to delve into the unknown and make a impact in an area of great personal passion.

Why EDI?

As an undergraduate, Sydney often observed that many products and services were not designed with the end-user and environment in mind, specifically in the global health field. Sydney hopes to tackle this problem through the use of human-centered design. Sydney chose EDI because she finds everyone involved to be as passionate as she is in their particular areas of study. She is excited to surround herself with like-minded peers in order to further learn and develop as a human-centered designer.
