The Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) have identified Smart and Connected Health (SCH: NSF-13-543) as a research priority. SCH was designed to address the need for the next generation of health and healthcare technology research through advances in the understanding of and applications in information science, technology, behavior, cognition, sensors, robotics, bioimaging and engineering. The purpose of this webinar is to explore this interagency program announcement and identify examples of the type of projects that have been funded through the program.
