Beyond the SEA: October 17, 2012 – Healthy & Wise: Healthcare and the Internet of Things

Posted by on October 3rd, 2012 Posted in: All Posts

Date:  October 17th, 2012

Time:  Noon to 1:00 pm (EDT)

Presenter: Kimberley Barker

Kimberley Barker is the Manager for Technology Education & Computing at the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library at the University of Virginia, and also serves as Chair of the Technology Regional Advisory Committee. She believes that technology empowers people, allowing them to make better decisions and enrich their personal and professional lives. Kimberley also believes that anyone can learn anything, and that everybody deserves the chance to do so.  To that end, she enjoys matching users with the most appropriate technology for their needs, teaching them how to use it, and providing moral support and practical guidance as they incorporate it into their work. A confirmed Starbucks chai addict with a Steampunk sensibility, she plays World of Warcraft as time permits, and enjoys teaching her pre-schooler the finer points of “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock”.

Presentation: Healthy & Wise: Healthcare and the Internet of Things

Contact lenses that monitor blood sugar and alert the wearer? A wristband that measures hours of sleep and send the results to healthcare providers? They’re not science fiction; they’re not even years away from reality! Smart devices like these are part of the Internet of Things, and they’re in use right now across the world. Join Kimberley Barker as she provides an overview of the Internet of Things, as well as highlights some specific examples and details their impact on healthcare.
