Expert to discuss efficacy of health technology devices at LFCC
Indiana University’s Dr. Kay Connelly will be the next speaker in LFCC’s Tech Bytes Series. Connelly will address if mobile apps, fitness trackers, sensor-enabled smart homes and other health devices are really as effective as they claim to be. She will be discussing the work the university’s Proactive Health Informatics Group is doing to test whether these technologies live up to their promise.
Connelly is the associate dean for research at Indiana University’s School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering and is the director of the university’s Proactive Health Informatics Group. Her research focuses on issues that influence individuals’ acceptance of health technologies. These issues include privacy, convenience and utility.
Connelly’s presentation is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 19 in Fairfax Hall Room 300 at the Middletown campus.
