CATCH joins the HSR Seminar Series for March Networking Lunch

This month, the CATCH community were excited to hold our March Networking Lunch in conjunction with the HSR Seminar Series.

Matt Machin, mHealth Applications Manager in the Centre for Health Informatics at the University of Manchester was our guest speaker at the event with his talk entitled “Improving Health in Long-term Conditions with Smartphone Apps and Wearable Devices”.

More than 30 academics, researchers and industrial partners joined us within ScHARR’s home, Regent Court, to hear Matt’s 45 minute talk. During this, Matt explained to the audience about the platforms they have developed and the projects associated with these and explored the potential future healthcare applications of these technologies.

Following the event, Melanie Rimmer from ScHARR shared that “It’s good to see developers and researchers working closely to develop evidence-based, well-evaluated apps that are more likely to be beneficial for people with long term conditions.”

The next Networking Lunch will take place on Wednesday 3rd May in the ICOSS Conference Room, University of Sheffield from 12.15 - 14.00. We’re delighted to welcome Professor Annalu Waller, Chair of Human Communication Technologies from the University of Dundee.

Please contact Laura Murray if you would like to attend.
