Pharmaceutical Packaging: A Collaboration with Occupational Therapy

As an Associate Professor of graphic design communication at Jefferson University, Maribeth Kradel-Weitzel has been teaching the program's package design course for over a decade. This semester, the course included a wonderful collaborative project with the occupational therapy program. Students created pharmaceutical packaging targeted to the needs of senior citizens. The students experienced vision impairment and arthritis simulations, and were able to conduct user testing with area senior citizens to determine the efficacy, ease of use and value of their concepts.
