WHO: AnthroTronix (@AnthroTronix), an engineering research and development firm committed to optimizing the interaction between people and technology.
WHAT: Dr. Corinna Lathan (@clathan), AnthroTronix board chair and CEO, will lead an eight-minute Time Equals Lives talk entitled, “Purposefully Designing the Future with Smart Machines and Healthy Brains” to discuss the impact of technology on the future of brain health. Lathan will share her personal experience developing health care technology including DANA, an FDA-cleared brain health assessment tool, and insights on what it takes to stay the course, focus on purpose and transform the way we know and care for our brains.
Among other research applications, DANA has been used in the 21CBT®/Caregiver Health-eBrain Study to measure the cognitive toll on caregivers of those caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia. According to the Centers for Disease Control, these caregivers are more likely to develop anxiety, depression and have a poorer quality of life. DANA is also being used in a pilot study being conducted at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital to evaluate dementia patients.
