@UofA SALSA’s Armstrong Keynotes Council on Aging, Discusses Human-Gadget Co-Evolution

David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the University of Arizona’s Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance gave a wide-ranging keynote lecture addressing philosophy, technology and the current merger of consumer electronics with healthcare this past week to the Pima Council on Aging. “We are approaching a day when kids will be born with a mobile device that will grow and upgrade and evolve with them”, noted Armstrong, who is also Scientific Director of the University of Arizona’s Interdisciplinary Consortium on Advanced Motion Performance (iCAMP). “If we are the sum of our memories, we should start asking ourselves what if our memories were never summarized?”

The lecture, which follows a series of talks given by Armstrong and his colleagues Bijan Najafi and Joseph Mills, coincide with clinical and translational research being done in their clinics, labs, and other units, worldwide.
