Caylee Raber is the Director of the Health Design Lab at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. The Health Design Lab is a research centre that applies design thinking to healthcare, using human-centred design research methodologies to address complex problems. Caylee’s practice focuses on the application of her interdisciplinary design skillset and experience with generative human-centred research methods to the health and education sectors.
As a designer and healthcare consultant, Caylee was involved in operations and transition planning in major hospital redevelopment projects in the US and Canada. In addition to her design practice, Caylee has been an active educator in the design program at Emily Carr University and is a design-education consultant in elementary schools in BC. Caylee’s Master of Design thesis work explored the integration of design as a pedagogic approach within K-7 classrooms, with a focus on the benefits of design for children with learning differences.
Caylee seeks to engage people as active participants within design in order to improve the health, education and well-being of our communities.
