Networking and Engagement Core

The Networking and Engagement Core (NMC) will catalyze the development of artificial intelligence technologies in products, services, and decision support tools to improve and maintain the health of aging Americans. The role of the NMC is to support the AITC by establishing innovative research, education, and outreach networks beyond the institution’s boundaries and bringing in resources to build AITC programs more rapidly.
