With a specialization in health informatics and health research, Apery Kira is a Health Studies student who is working on a project to develop a driving self-assessment application for older adults to support the idea of early planning for driving cessation and to promote safe driving decisions. She has collaborated on a scoping review of ICT-mediated integrated care practices. As her honours thesis, she has also completed a systematic review on the efficacy of telehealth in multimorbid, older adults with cardiovascular disease. By joining the ITWIL lab, Apery aims to apply the skills she has gained as a School of Public Health and Health Systems student and from her co-op experiences as a research assistant for Sinai Health Systems and the Department of Psychology to aid the development of technology that empowers older adults to take control of their health and enables them to improve their safety and quality of life.
