You are all invited to this one-day meeting held in a hybrid format. The meeting is promised to be an exciting one. It will start with a remote workshop titled, “Using Smartphones for Passive and Active Data Collection in Older Populations,” presented by an NIMLAS member Dr. Florian Keusch from the University of Mannheim in Germany. You will also have an opportunity to learn about current NIMLAS pilot projects and other NIMLAS activities. The meeting agenda is included at the bottom of this email for your information.
