Innovative HPER Elective for Fall: HPER-H 317 Health, Technology, and Aging

Applied Health Science has a cutting edge course which has just gone on the schedule recently with a grant from the Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Kelley School of Business. There are 5 seats left:

Health, Technology, and Aging
It is HPER H317 (25721) for 3 credits 11:15-12:30 MW.

This new course draws on faculty experts from the fields of gerontology, health care and health promotion, and human computer interactions to help you learn how various applications of technology can help older adults stay healthy and independent. You will also learn how to develop a business plan for a start-up company in gerotechnology: consumer applications of technology for improving the health of the burgeoning aging population. For more information, contact Dr. Lesa Huber (lehuber@indiana.edu)

NOTE: This class counts as an elective outside the College of Arts and Sciences. Students majoring in CMCL are limited in the number of credits they can take outside the College, so make sure that you have room for an elective like this before signing up (e-mail me at tkauf@indiana.edu if you’re not sure).
