Professors Wendy Rogers and Raksha Mudar have been awarded a grant through the Discovery Partners Institute, a purpose-driven collaborative research institute located in Chicago that is focused on prosperity and growing the state's workforce by creating solutions to grand challenges. Rogers' and Mudar's project will explore whether social isolation among older adults can be prevented with the use of video technology and will specifically identify if this platform can help those older adults who are economically disadvantaged.
