Harnessing Technology to Support Successful Aging
Collaborations in Health, Aging, Research, & Technology, or CHART, is an interdisciplinary research program comprised of University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign faculty, community members, and healthcare providers devoted to supporting research efforts that promote aging successfully through the use of technology.
To enable successful aging through:
- Fundamental research
- Advanced technology development
- Education of researchers, developers, healthcare professionals, and older adults
- Guidance for policy decision-making
- Translation of these efforts to positively affect the lives of older adults.
