We're starting the year both in-person & virtual with Ipek Ensari talking to us about mobile health data.
Thank you to BrainStation for hosting us.
Everybody attending must RSVP through the registration form at nyhackr.org. Both in-person & virtual tickets are free, though we need a separate count for each for the venue.
About the Talk:
Rapid advances in mobile health (mHealth) technology are enabling unprecedented granularity into patient health status & disease experience. However, how to best handle the often complex patient-generated mHealth data requires several considerations so that we can derive meaningful insights. This is particularly important when working with populations that are at increased risk for health disparities & those who may be hard to reach. In this talk, Ipek will discuss some of these methodological issues in the context of her latest work with ecological momentary assessments to investigate daily patterns of physical activity, sleep & daily stressors among sexual & gender minority adults. She will focus on harmonizing longitudinal multi-modal data, functional data approaches, & special considerations for small sample sizes.
Ipek is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Artificial Intelligence & Human Health at the Icahn School of Medicine & the Hasso Plattner Institute of Digital Health at Mount Sinai. She investigates mobile health (mHealth) & machine learning methods for complex patient-generated data toward improving chronic disease characterization & patient self-management. Her work is grounded in women's reproductive health conditions (e.g., endometriosis) & populations at increased risk for health disparities. She is currently leading a NIH-funded project that aims to design digital patient reported outcome measures for improved real-time measurement & monitoring of chronic pain symptoms outside of the clinic. Ipek completed her doctorate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign & post-doctoral training at Columbia University.
The venue doors open at 5:45 PM America/New_York where we continue enjoying pizza together (we encourage the virtual audience to have pizza as well). The talk, & livestream, begins at 6:30 PM America/New_York.
