Use your creativity to change lives with health technology
Personal Health Informatics Kickstart for Aspiring Scientists
Saturday, October 25th, 2014,  Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts
Spend a high-paced, action-packed day networking with, and working on, multi-disciplinary teams to reimagine a new age of healthy living. This invite-only event is an opportunity to collectively design and implement a high-impact research project that could be funded using a research crowd-funding site such as Experiment.com.
The day will begin with inspirational talks from faculty to get your creativity flowing. Next you’ll develop ideas for impactful research projects, consulting with top experts in personal health informatics, mobile health, pattern recognition and machine learning, epidemiology, and various health domains.
The event will culminate with a healthy dose of competition! You’ll present your research idea to all attendees and to a distinguished panel of experts who will evaluate your idea, provide feedback, and award prizes to the first ($1,000), 2nd ($500) and 3rd place teams ($250). Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided.

Personal health informatics is the study of person- and patient-facing technologies and how they can be used to improve health and change the nature of our healthcare system. Examples of personal health informatics technologies include assistive technologies that aid persons with disabilities, consumer wellness promotion technologies, patient education and counseling systems, interfaces for reviewing personal health records, advanced ambulatory monitoring for supporting health, automated eldercare systems that support independent living, and social networking systems connecting families and their social and medical support networks.
