Ideas for Making Health! [#makehealth]


#NationOfMakers #MakeHealth

Remember I said the idea of the UM We Make Health Fest began with hearing about the White House’s first ever Maker Faire? Well, that is TODAY!!!! The map above shows some of the activity nationwide with people being part of a Nation of Makers. Remember I said, “You have to talk about health. There is SO MUCH going on with bringing the Maker Movement to health!” Then our team went off and brainstormed.
