You are invited to a Special Seminar on June 13th at 9:00 AM given by Danielle Lee Mowery, PhD, Postdoctoral Research Associate; Director, Natural Language Processing Service Line, Department of Biomedical Informatics, University of Utah.

The seminar is titled “Supporting Population Health Research with Natural Language Processing” and will be held at the Department of Biomedical Informatics (address below).

Abstract

Textual data sources including clinical notes from electronic health records and posts from public social media platforms (e.g., Twitter and Reddit) provide a rich source for understanding disease in the community, especially when combined with technologies like Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning. In this talk, I will describe recent work toward supporting population health research efforts i.e., developing NLP resources for comparative effectiveness studies and genotype/phenotype studies of stroke and mining social media for mental health signals of depression.
