    Additional Comments:  The seminar will provide an overview of the “Collaborative for Innovation in Data & Measurement in Aging” (CIDMA). CIDMA is a collaboration between the Duke Center for Population Health and Aging (CPHA) and the University of Chicago’s Center for Health Aging Behaviors and Longitudinal Investigations (CHABLIS) and their respective P30 NIA Center grants. CIDMA and its investigative team, collaborates with existing data collection studies of aging to design and conduct assessments of innovative and untested data collection and measurement methods and to disseminate and educate the field of aging research on the successes and shortcomings on these in-novations. The seminar will provide an overview of CIDMA’s approach and criteria for the types of in-novation it assesses. We also will discuss findings from a recent assessment of the collection of data on social engagement/isolation related to individuals’ daily activities and spatial movements (or lack of them) in rural settings using mobile technology. This assessment was conducted in collaboration with two existing studies housed at Duke, the Great Smoky Mountains Study (GSMS) and Project RAISE (Re-search on Adaptive Interests, Skills and Environment).
