Meeting 2:

1. Since last meeting we have compiled research and have spent time thinking about where we want to focus our efforts this quarter. We now know that we want to focus on the patient and probably on the post-treatment effects that they experience while in remission from breast cancer.

2. By next meeting we hope to have committed time to our progression towards ideation. We want to be thinking about the insights that we've uncovered and start to come up with solutions to the HCW statements that we'll be talking about on Sunday.

3. Timing has been tricky due to midterm filled weeks for our team members and we haven't been able to meet more than one time (outside of Open Studio) per week. Now that we're moving towards ideation we want to spend ample time creating a great solution.

4. We just made some big decisions in narrowing down our focus, now it's time to start coming up with ideas!

Meeting 1:

1. We shared our experiences interviewing breast cancer survivors, caregivers, and medical professionals. We brainstormed what problems currently exist in the process of treating breast cancer and began discussing places where our team would be able to make an impact.

2. By next meeting we planned to finish our primary research and post a summary of what we have learned on our google drive under the "Research" folder. We also decided that we will consolidate some of our most profound insights onto sticky notes to make our work on Sunday expedited and more efficient which will allow us to start moving deeper into some of the most prominent issues.

3. We are beginning to notice that every story of breast cancer is so different and we are trying to be careful in not generalizing the experience too much too early based only off of our small sample size. We are hoping to do research early so that we can move past this obstacle comfortably.

4. Our current big decisions are trying to make a judgement in deciding where we will want to specialize our research. For now we are trying to keep everything as broad as possible, but it's always hard to suspend initial tendencies.
