Abstract: Cervical cancer and STI screening have long been tenets of women's health, but barriers like inconvenience, discomfort or lack of awareness can prevent many from participating regularly. Jessica Ching and Evan Moses founded Eve Medical, a Toronto-based medtech startup, with the goal of re-inventing the screening experience by expanding it beyond the clinic into the privacy and convenience of women's homes. In this lecture, Jessica will present her inspiring journey in developing the Eve kit and discuss the intersection between industrial design and health care.
