Open Studio 3: (February 28th, 2015)
Feedback

OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM:  being unclear & lack of information

What People Liked:
- Dr. Dan & Sick Sally
- Very personal problem!
- The idea for a mentor
- Your opportunities
- Very specific 
- Working towards a prototype and the progress so far

What People Wish 
- What is the problem and why is there a prototype
- What are you hoping to learn from this prototype?
- Wish there was a process and a proof of concept
- Wish they could hear more about methods, research, and how we arrived at our prototype/potential solution [aka process and proof of concept]
- Story should be more emotional
- Need user feedback in process part
- Make clearer how this is different (or better) from doctors simply handing out referrals

A brutal battle between Hobby, Dr. Alt, and Drive. We used the scoping wheel and pro/con lists to decide on Dr. Alt. We brainstormed on potential how might we's and need to begin user interviews.

Joe - statistician
Chris, Kate, & Liam - informal interviews

QUESTIONS FOR INFORMAL INTERVIEWS:
• Ask about biggest medical problem ever?
• Did you consider an alternative?
• Have you ever been frustrated at a doctor?
• What medical help would you recommend?
• Mock-illness exercise
QUESTIONS FOR STATISTICIAN:
• Are there foundations/non-profits/companies interested in the problem?
