【Public Health Seminar Series】Uncovering the epidemiology of vision impairment and health in older adults

Uncovering the epidemiology of vision impairment and health in older adults

【Speaker】Jian-YuE, ScD, MD, MPH

Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins

UniversitySchool of Medicine


【Time】Nov3. 10-11 am

【Venue】TencentMeeting(ID:925 779 505)


Mobility is a central feature of well-being and an essential component of quality of life, particularly in visually impaired older adults, whose functional capability is often compromised, physical activity declines, and the risk of falling increases. This seminar presents new insights into 1) gathering data necessary for designing programs to prevent mobility restrictions, 2) utilizing of remote-sensing technology to evaluate real-world mobility outcomes, 3) and characterizing patterns of daily activity to indicate future health. Information acquired from this seminar will lay groundwork for future epidemiological studies with the objectives to design and implement interventions to eliminate health disparities between people with and without visual impairment.
