Maggie Breslin

Designer, Researcher and Writer

Maggie Breslin is a designer and researcher with a focus on health care delivery. She pioneered the role of designer-researcher at the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation when she joined in 2005. She leads research, design and development efforts on topics such as decision making, risk communication, integrated practice models, remote care, caregiving and minimally disruptive medicine.

Breslin believes that good conversation is a critically important — but mostly ignored — component of our health care system and champions this idea in all her work. She has logged countless hours observing and talking to patients and clinicians and counts those opportunities as among her most treasured.

Breslin holds a Master of Design from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and a Bachelor of Science in mass communications, film and television from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
