CUNY SPH faculty Ashish Joshi and Ann Gaba were selected to present at the 17thAnnual CUNY IT Conference, which will be held November 29 and 30 at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Dr. Joshi, Senior Associate Dean of Student and Academic Affairs, will present the Student Workflow Information Management System (SWIMS) which he recently designed, developed and implemented at CUNY SPH. SWIMS is a student recruitment platform that uses informatics to strategize the admissions process. It has several components including data collection, data processing, data integration, data visualization and data communication. The system will assess the effectiveness of various approaches to graduate student recruitment and can be used to inform other graduate school admissions processes. Dr. Gaba, Assistant Professor of Environmental, Occupational, and Geospatial Health Sciences, will present a web-based simulated hospital unit for pre-professional training of nutrition and dietetics students and interns through the ACE platform. The simulation mimics a general medical or surgical unit, including ten diverse patients “admitted” with various medical problems, their medical records, and animated short videos of patients and family members interacting with dietitians and medical residents. The on-line, virtual hospital unit will address educational needs in a unique, accessible and cost-effective way. Learn more about the 2018 CUNY IT Conference here.
