About this seminar series:
We are pleased to announce the start of a new monthly seminar series focusing on the use of Digital Health Technologies in Mental Health. Our intention is to bring together researchers across campus interested in this topic, with the hope of learning about current approaches being used, understanding how existing approaches could be enhanced, and potentially fostering new collaborations.

Each 90-minute seminar (3rd Monday of the Month, 3:30-5pm) will feature someone in academia using digital health technologies in their work, followed by a similar chat by someone in industry nominated by peers at UCSF whose work is considered especially compelling in this space.

To better serve the community, each seminar will be broadcast via WebEx to rooms on four campus sites:

  • Parnassus: LP-371
  • Mission Bay: RH-102
  • SFVAMC: Bldg. 16, Room C19
  • ZSFG: Bldg. 5, Room 7M30A

Monday, November 20, 2017 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm

401 Parnassus Ave., San Francisco, CA 94143
