28: Sensing Health

September 18, 2020


Across the globe, millions of people are experiencing the challenges, complexities, and costs of caring for elderly family members—these challenges have been amplified and complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. AARP recently reported that 48 million Americans, mostly women, care for another adult and now, checking in on our elder loved ones in a physically distanced manner requires even greater creativity and innovation. In this episode, we meet nurse innovator Joshua Littlejohn MPH, MSN, RN, and entrepreneur Gabriela Sabaté, MBA, MHCI, who are experimenting and innovating with technologies that connect data to transform how we not only provide care remotely, but also how we approach and use hackathons as a way to crowdsource ideas and introduce new innovations.
