Janna's Talk Description: People with disabilities spend $1.2 trillion annually, yet there are more clothing companies for pets than there are for people with disabilities. This talk will outline a path to jump start or continue your organization’s process of creating an inclusive design program based on the principles of starting a garden. We’ll discuss how to nurture, plan and test your inclusive design strategy and end up with a lovely harvest at the end!

Track Description: How do we tell the story we want to tell while building meaningful relationships with our audience? How do we communicate in a way that people can understand and relate to? And how do we do we determine what content and message is most appropriate and relevant? This session will dig into these questions and more to help you enhance digital communication and engagement with health content that matters.
