The College of Health Sciences invites the UD community to submit ideas about the future of health care for inclusion in a time capsule.

#Healthcare2050: Nov. 4-8

Innovative ideas to be included in STAR Campus time capsule


8:52 a.m., Nov. 4, 2013--If you have ideas about what health care will look like in the middle of the 21st century, the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences wants to hear from you.

The ideas will become part of history, as the college plans to include them in a time capsule commemorating the opening of the first building on the Health Sciences Complex at UD’s Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus in early 2014.

  • Grab a pen and talk to the college the old-fashioned way by writing on one of the blank posters hanging in CHS buildings (McDowell, Willard, CSB, McKinly, and Rust Ice Arena). The college will share specific locations each day on Facebook or look for them as you travel around campus.

The college will share ideas on Twitter (@UDCHS) and make a surprise announcement on Facebook on Friday, Nov. 8.

“Our facility at the STAR Campus is going to create a new model for the integration of clinically based research, interprofessional education, and the delivery of clinical services,” says health sciences dean Kathleen Matt. “We want the entire community to join the conversation and help us predict — and shape — health care history.”
