Judd alums working with MDP capstone team

MDP capstone team project profiled by Judd Fellowship Program.

Catching up with the Judd alumni

Anna Martin ('07) and Sarah Thompson ('05), co-founders of Picture Impact , are pleased to work with a group of Master of Development Practice students from the UMN Humphrey School of Public Affairs on a design challenge as a part of the students' Capstone Workshop. Maternal and infant mortality rates, after years of improvement, have become stagnant in many areas of Africa, despite increased investment and intervention. As a social design studio, this type of intractable problem invites Picture Impact to lean in and look in-between the more common frames for gaps, which would benefit from a design perspective. Anna and Sarah said, "We are thoroughly enjoying coaching a fabulous group of students through a design process and collaborating with them as we dive deep into this issue. The project is designed to span several capstone groups and ultimately result in a sale-able package targeted to global partners in the West African region."
