The AHI Program builds relationships with community and corporate partners through projects that involve the use of technology that aims to promote positive change. Below are some initiatives our program faculty, staff, and/or students have been involved with.
National Health IT Collaborative for the Underserved (NHIT) Data Fusion Center
Long Island Digital Inclusion Coalition
AHI students and faculty have been actively involved in the formation of the Long Island Digital Inclusion Coalition, a collaborative group of Long Island community organizations, libraries, government entities, education institutions and businesses focused on addressing the three “pillars” of the digital divide – internet access, device access, and digital skills readiness – on Long Island.
MIT Hacking Racism Hackathon 2021
Several AHI students participated in MIT's Engineering Health Equity Hackathon in November 2021. Students developed solutions to address pervasive healthcare access and SDOH issues.
“Connect 2 UR Health” Wellness Fair
With support from the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM), the “Connect 2 UR Health” wellness fair provided seniors in Southampton with interactive, age-specific and hands-on iPad training sessions on relevant health conditions to assist seniors to manage their health and increase health literacy. Licensed health providers from Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and students from the School of Health Professions organized and participated in the event.
