Developing Mobile Apps for a Healthy Life
September 26, 2017 - 6:30pm - 8:30pm

WeWork Bryant Park, 54 W 40th Street, NYC

Wellness. Emotions. Nutrition. Surgical recovery. Faculty across Cornell’s three campuses – Ithaca, Weill Cornell Medicine, Cornell Tech – are inventing applications to track and analyze our health. From increasing personal understanding of individual health, to changing the patient care paradigm, to using the immense swaths of data from apps to identify trends in populations, Cornell experts are on the cutting edge of understanding human health. Join us to hear about this work and more. Plus, learn how Cornell transfers technology from the lab to the market. Featuring:

David Erickson, Sibley College Professor in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Cornell University and Chairman of VitaScan, Inc.
