Our January 2012 course at the Rhode Island School of Design asks the questions, “How can complex public policy
such as the Healthcare Reform Act be communicated to the public? How can we help citizens inform themselves so that
they can make informed assessments and judgments?” Bringing their diverse visual and conceptual skills, students will
experiment with effective ways of translating a written legislative document into effective visual and graphic design that
makes the information clear, accessible and understandable.

Counting the Rhode Island Uninsured
Many people have misconceptions about who the uninsured in Rhode Island are. This poster translates survey data of the uninsured into a visual language to better show who they are. With healthcare reform, 54% of the RI uninsured will get health insurance expansions in Medicaid, government subsidies for private insurance, and by other means as a result of the Affordable Care Act.
