Health Informatics RIG
The Health Informatics RIG provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers to explore and collaborate around the topic of information and communication technologies that intersect with health and well-being across the lifespan. It seeks to balance and integrate efforts from the technological aspects of health informatics and those from the social, behavioral, and design aspects, particularly as related to age, culture, and community.
