Visit of Dr. Lindsay Stevens (Stanford University) at FIS
Dr. Lindsay Stevens was invited to the Prague University of Economics and Business as a Fulbright Specialist from April 19 – 29, 2022. Dr. Stevens was asked to visit the Faculty of Informatics and Statistics to share her expertise in health informatics and exchange knowledge on this growing field.
Dr. Stevens gave two engaging lectures on the topics of electronic health records and the learning health system during her time here. These presentations created a great deal of discussion amongst students and faculty about opportunities to leverage Czech health data to improve healthcare and leverage the power of data in the medical space.
Additionally, Dr. Stevens met with a number of our faculty to discuss curriculum development in health informatics and future opportunities for collaboration and partnerships with our US colleagues. It was very helpful to hear her perspectives on program development and how we may attract partners within the Czech Republic and beyond to encourage more engagement with health data and the analytical opportunities it presents.
We are so grateful to the Fulbright Program for providing support for Dr. Stevens’ visit to our university and to Dr. Stevens for her leadership, teaching, and perspectives on health informatics scholarship opportunities. We look forward to future engagement with her and the Stanford University community.
