About the Committee
Currently, COUHR works towards synthesizing solutions to eliminate the barriers faced by youth from underrepresented communities. Through our undergraduate summer research program, we have enabled keen students from these populations with an opportunity to pursue health research. In the near future we hope to tackle prevalent health-care issues through the integration of technology.
The latter describes the focus National Data Management and Program development committee. The activities of our committee is diversified into the following three areas outlined below:
- Program Development - Bioinformatics and software development projects that aim to mitigate current healthcare barriers, and facilitate findings in health research.
- Data Management - Data analysis public datasets, and datasets retrieved from COUHR operations (i.e. apps) in hopes to identify existing trends in health care, and health research.
- Problem identification - Identifying current issues or barriers in healthcare or health related research via the scientific method.
