This week we have researcher Bo Xie joining us to talk about Electronic Health Information, particularly for our large aging population. Bo Xie is an Assistant Professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. She holds degrees in Medicine, Psychology, and Science & Technology Studies (Ph.D. in 2006 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY). Her research and teaching focus on life-long learning of technology, particularly for health-related purposes.

Some of the topics will include why we want older adults to learn and access the web for health information, what some of the barriers are, Bo’s eHILLL project, and the future of health informatics on the web.
