Home Sweet HomeLab: Studying Daily Life in Context with Richard Gonzalez

a Presentation

Richard Gonzalez (Institute for Social Research, RCGD)

Thursday, 4/5/2018, 2:00pm.   ARCHIVED EVENT

Location: 1430 ISR, 426 Thompson St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104

ISR Perspectives presents Richard Gonzalez, Director of RCGD, as the next speaker in the "Getting to Know ISR" series.

Gonzalez will discuss ground-breaking research conducted at ISR's HomeLab, a fully functional mock apartment where researchers use personal observation, cameras, microphones, and wearable sensors to record data as participants perform ordinary daily living activities. They can also collect and analyze biomarker data from blood and saliva.

An important potential for HomeLab, a collaboration involving several U-M units - including ISR and BioSocial Methods - is studying how health and health care can be better managed at home for seniors.

Refreshments provided!

All Welcome. Hosted by the ISR DACCD Perspectives Committee.
