A learning center for cardiac patients and family members
Heart disease is one of the most common health issues facing Americans today, yet an overwhelming number of people lack a basic understanding of the subject. Your Heart, a permanent exhibition at Missouri Baptist Medical Center, provides a comprehensive overview of basic heart functions, disease prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. Our team employed illustration, animation, narratives and medical devices to present the sensitive and complex subject matter in a form easily accessible to a diverse audience.
I gathered literature and illustrations from all mediums to learn where we could improve on content and to gain an understanding of how patients were coming in contact with this information. Concepts for our illustrations ranged from abstract and schematic to photo-realistic.
