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.

Campus Stories

New Vita Nova

Students and faculty enjoy the newly renovated Vita Nova student-run restaurant, and hold a luncheon to celebrate donors Jayne and Chris Malfitano.

Exercise counseling

The University of Delaware's Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology is now offering exercise counseling services at the Nurse Managed Health Center.

To submit ideas:

  • Follow the college on Facebook, where it is launching #Healthcare2050 the week of Nov. 4. A different question will be posted each day to spark ideas and interest, and followers can post their ideas as comments. 
  • For those who are not on Facebook, email ideas to chs-replies@udel.edu.
  • 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.”
