Noted Technology Expert at Healthcare Seminars

Technology expert Doug Hohulin advocates incorporating wearable technology and cutting edge genetic testing equipment in order to improve global health. 

On Thursday, October 15, from 7 to 8:30 pm, noted technology advocate Doug Hohulin will host an informative technology seminar in Smith Hall, room 123 on MNU’s main campus. Hohulin’s lectures will cover the current state of smartphones, wearable technology, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the important role wearable technology is beginning to play in the healthcare decisions and wellness planning of everyday people. According to Hohulin, personalized, wearable technologies—such as the enormously popular Fitbit—work to drive down the costs of diagnosing certain health problems and make actionable, real-time healthcare data available to the masses. For those interested in using technology to improve their fitness, this seminar is not to be missed.

On Thursday, October 29, from 7 to 8:30 pm, Hohulin will be hosting another seminar in Smith Hall, focusing on how genetic information from the past—in combination with new, cutting edge devices and technology—can work to improve the health of people today through low cost genetic testing. Hohulin also plans to cover ethical matters within the context of genetic testing—a topic sure to inspire robust discussion. This later seminar will build on concepts introduced in the first, but may also attract a new audience with professional interest in genetic testing technology and how it will impact the average person.

Both seminars are free and open to the public. 

Doug Hohulin is an electrical engineer and graduate of Purdue University. He is currently a Strategy and Business Development Manager at Nokia. Hohulin is best known for his work to advance 4G and 5G cellular technology with mega-carrier Sprint. In the past, Hohulin has worked for Motorola as a cellular telecommunication engineer, where he deployed cellular telephone systems around the globe. In his free time, the engineer volunteers at Mobile Citizen, where he works to lower the cost of broadband to non-profit corporations, educational entities and social welfare agencies. In the future, Hohulin envisions a world connected by smartphones, sensors, the Internet of Things, and wearable technology--all seamlessly connected, user friendly and personalized in order to increase the health and wellness of every human being willing to use the technology.
