Meet the Speaker

Do you know nearly 75% of all deaths in the U.S. are attributed to just 10 causes, with the top three accounting for over 50% of all deaths?

Respiratory diseases are #3 killer in the U.S. followed by heart disease and cancer. About 1 in 12 people have asthma, and the numbers are increasing every year. 50% of asthma cases are not well controlled and the yearly cost of asthma in the U.S. is around $56B! Majority of costs coming from preventable emergency-based care.

In this talk, hear how 3M tackles big problem worth solving through human-centered innovation approach behind the development of 3M™ Respiratory Tracker. This talk will showcase value creation by applying Ecosystem Thinking, co-creation, improving algorithms with design, and optimize product development through crowdsourcing.

Nothing impacts Health & Wellness more than breathing. Breathing is the most elemental of human activities. We inhale and exhale 20,000 times a day without being conscious of what we’re doing. Join us to learn about the journey 3M took to improve every life by delivering Better Breathing.
