Lecture by Jane Chung, PhD, RN, to Focus on Sensor Technologies on Thursday, Feb. 2

January 2, 2017

On Thursday, February 2nd, Jane Chung, PhD, RN, will deliver a talk at the library. Her topic is the role of sensor technologies in monitoring daily activities and mobility of older adults. These technologies can improve the quality of life for older adults and enable them to age in place.

Dr. Chung, an Assistant Professor at the UNM College of Nursing, will present findings from two research projects. These studies are testing the feasibility of a home-based sensor system and wearable motion sensors for community-dwelling older adults. She will describe different types of sensor technologies and their uses in various settings. She also will cover issues that can potentially affect older adults’ acceptance of sensor technologies.

The talk will be held in room 228 of the library from 10 to 11 a.m. Everyone is invited to attend. This lecture is part of HSLIC’s Biomedical Informatics Seminar Series (BioMISS).
