Center for Disability Health and Wellness Monthly Meeting

9:00 am to 10:00 am

Online Via Zoom

This is a monthly meeting and it includes faculty/staff members from the research, clinical and community organizations. The meeting is the 3rd Monday of every month.

For our March meeting, we welcome our CDHW member, Dhruv "DJ" Jain, an Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. DJ directs the Accessibilty lab at UMich CSE, with a goal to design, build, and evaluate systems to address specific day-to-day needs of people with disabilites. For example, one of the current systems the lab is working on is a sound awareness smartwatch app that informs deaf and hard of hearing people about the sounds in their vicinity.  The app has been released to the public, and has over 2000 downloads so far!
