Meet virtually with Dr. Fumiko Hoeft, Director of the UConn Brain Imaging Research Center (BIRC), and learn about the state-of-the-art equipment, methods, and training offered by the Center. InCHIP and BIRC are co-sponsoring a $30,000 seed grant opportunity (see here). Learn more about the seed grant and BIRC’s resources and services at the Virtual Meet ‘n’ Greet.
Recently, InCHIP held a Virtual Meet n’ Greet with the Community Health Center Association of Connecticut (CHCACT) focused on opportunities for collaborative research. As a reminder, the InCHIP-CHCACT seed grant application process is open, and letters of intent are due by April 26. CHCACT coordinates the efforts of 16 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), all of which have multiple sites and together provide services to nearly 400,000 patients across Connecticut. For more information about CHCACT and their member FQHCs, see the CHCACT website.
The InCHIP-CHCACT Virtual Meet n’ Greet was recorded. Here is the link to view the video recording.

During Spring Semester 2019, InCHIP will host a series of panel discussions that center on the general theme of technology and health. This series will culminate with the InCHIP Ideas Lab (April 11th-12th, 2019) which will address the “wicked problem” of how can we better utilize wearable, mobile-based, and other data-rich technology to promote health and well-being and ultimately prevent and manage chronic disease in an ethical and legally sound fashion? Our hope is that these talks will appeal to a diversity of disciplines (from philosophy to social work to engineering and everything in between) and will act as a springboard for a campus wide conversation around the use of technology to improve health.
