Below is a brief description of the Beckman Institute's Health Strategic Initiative. For more details continue to their website for the latest updates, resources, and information.
As our population continues to live and stay in the work force longer, the goal of promoting health and wellness across the lifespan has gained increasing prominence at the national and the campus level. Faculty at the Beckman Institute, distributed across our core themes, have made and continue to make critical contributions to this goal. The HABITS initiative is designed to systemize and coordinate these efforts to create cross-cutting "Beckman-led, campus-wide" intellectual and educational opportunities and innovations.
The HABITS initiative seeks to seed research directions and to taking existing ones to new levels. The initiative provides infrastructure for faculty and students to come together and build integrative, cross-cutting health-related enterprises at even larger scales – ultimately creating centers and programs to further support research and technology development, but also to advance education and training.
