InCHIP Spring 2019 Series

InCHIP Spring 2019 Series

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.

Ideas lab 2019

April 11-12th, 2019

InCHIP Ideas Lab: Harnessing the Potential of Our Data-Rich Lives to Improve Health and Well-Being

Description: InCHIP’s Ideas Lab is designed to engage teams of interdisciplinary researchers in tackling “wicked problems” by exploring new ways of thinking about, studying, and generating novel solutions to these complex issues. The focus of this Ideas Lab is to generate and examine questions such as: 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? We invite experts from a broad range of disciplines to join us in this work, including but not limited to: behavioral, social, biomedical, and environmental sciences; engineering and mathematics; policy and law; business; education; the arts and humanities; or any other discipline that can provide new insights and perspectives on this topic.
