Lauryn Classen

Hello! I’m a content designer with a background in public health, strategic communication, and journalism. I’m currently a senior content designer and researcher at Collective Health, where attempt to untangle the dumpster fire that is the US healthcare system and attempting to co-design a better user experience with our members. In previous roles as a design researcher, I’ve collaborated with young designers in India, Rwanda, and El Salvador to explore, test, and share HCD projects based around reproductive health and sex ed. As a health writer and content strategist, I’ve worked with the American Heart Association, the Center for Disease Philanthropy, and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting to create campaigns aimed at advocating for policy change with local communities. I’m passionate about using participatory research and design thinking as tools to help make health information engaging, equitable, and actionable.
