  24. 24. Sketching ideas for functionality and concept
  25. 25. Feedback from the group
  26. 26. Which ideas are connected? What should we take with us going next?
  27. 27. Hypothesis: The users ask Google and not all of the answers they get are trustworthy. What does the diagnosis entail? What are my chances? What did the doctor really say? How do I avoid getting the same disease as my mother? The answers exist, and behind all the statistics, doctor’s coats and bureaucracy there are human beings wanting to help.
  28. 28. Answer: Knowledge kills fear. The Cancer Society’s website is a natural authority on the field. You get verified answers that are easy to understand. You can see who says what. It’s not a facless institution, but competent professionals with a name and a face.
