Expert on mobile technology to deliver Bullough Lecture

Published February 23, 2021

Ryan Shaw, a digital health specialist and expert on integrating mobile technologies into first-generation care-delivery systems, will give the School of Nursing’s 24th Annual Bonnie Bullough Lecture on April 16.

Shaw, a faculty member at the Duke University School of Nursing and the Duke Center for Applied Genomics and Precision Medicine, was one of the first scientists to publish research showing that patients could feasibly use multiple mobile technologies to manage their health.

Shaw has also conducted foundational clinical trials exploring how patients and clinicians use mobile health for self-management and care delivery.

The Bullough lecture, which begins at 9:15 a.m. following 9 a.m. opening remarks (both delivered via Zoom), will highlight the School of Nursing’s Eighth Annual Research Day. The theme of Research Day is the effect and importance of technology in health research. Shaw’s keynote address is titled “Digital Health Technologies for Behavior Change and Symptom Management.”

The annual Research Day brings together nursing scholars across Western New York to discuss and share advancements in the study of pressing health care issues. Students and faculty will present their research across a wide range of health care topics during a virtual poster session following the lecture.

The Bullough Lecture was established in 1997 by Vern Bullough to honor the memory of his wife and colleague, Bonnie Bullough, dean of the School of Nursing from 1980-91, by bringing prominent leaders in the field to speak to the School of Nursing community.

Research Day is sponsored by the Bonnie Bullough and Margaret A. Nelson Endowment. For more information and to register for the events, visit the School of Nursing’s website.
