IAS faculty member Lauren Berliner presented her collaborative research with Nursing and Health Studies faculty member Nora Kenworthy on crowdfunding for health crisis as part of a panel called “Exploring Concepts of Care and Vulnerability: Co-design of Community-based Narrative Intervention for Wellness“ at the CoLED Conference "Ethnography and Design: Mutual Provocations” in San Diego.  Her talk focused on the findings from their recent qualitative study of 200 GoFundMe.com medical campaigns and their plans to develop an interactive, public scholarship project that  would seek to involve the communities to engage in discussion and debates about the structures, aesthetics, and impacts of crowdfunded health.
