Center on Aging Hosts Workshop on Health Care Technologies
The Center for Research on Aging and Technology Enhancement (CREATE) hosted an extremely successful workshop – “Health Care Technologies for Older Adults: Design, Adoption, Implementation & Training Issues” – February 25-26 at the Center on Aging.
The workshop, the first of its kind to be held by the Center on Aging, attracted 20 representatives from technology companies and other universities in the U.S. and Canada who are involved in health care product development or research related to aging and health.
“This inaugural conference was a wonderful way to showcase CREATE and our Center on Aging,” said Sara J. Czaja, Ph.D., Leonard M. Miller Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Scientific Director of the Center on Aging and principal investigator for CREATE. “It also provided opportunities for new collaborations and expanding our activities related to health interventions for older adults. We intend to make this an annual event based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our attendees.”
