This week’s episode of “WisBusiness: The Podcast” features a discussion with Kim Litwack, dean of the College of Nursing at UW-Milwaukee.
She discusses an initiative the university is launching alongside Heritage Senior Living, a West Allis company with about 20 care facilities across the state. Through this partnership, students will be researching technologies like virtual reality and social robotics in the context of these care facilities.
“It’s not just cardiac monitors and IV pumps and things that everyone can use — these are special,” she said. “To be on the driving edge and help design them, determine best practices, I think will be very appealing to students.”
