I love creating and problem solving. I grew my own successful seminar company for 20 years and now divide my time between public health and physical therapy. I thrive in a collaborative environment and learned a lot from IDEO's Human Centered Design course. I'm a bicycling, hiking outdoor enthusiast and every day am in awe of all the Bay Area has to offer.
Hi Bettina, I received notices that you have been editing the idea. Looks good. I noticed that one of your upcoming steps that you mentioned is meeting with a public health professional. I just wanted to let you know that as well as being the team's resident physical therapist I also have an MPH from Johns Hopkins and am an Associate Faculty member there. So I may be able to wear the public health hat too. All the best, Monika
I also like the idea of themes and using local artists. I'd be careful about putting too much text on the pathway but I think letters, single words, or simple equations could work. Re. targets v. obstacles I often make obstacle courses for my patients when working on advanced balance training. We pretty freely use the foam squares and blocks that I put down as either obstacles or targets. I imagine that people can use painted shapes on the paths either way. Also to bring in cognition you could have instructions with different ways people can use the path. For instance sometimes I tell my patients to step ON all blue squares but step AROUND all red triangles. This is just a suggestion of different challenges that could be listed.
