Mar 31 12:00 pm Social media and public health: a case study of Chinese Weibo data Mathematical Sciences (MAP)
Speaker: Prof. Isaac Chun-Hai Fung, Department of Epidemiology, Georgia Southern University Abstract: The rapid growth of social media and their potential use in public health practice has generated a lot of interest among public health professionals. The first half of this presentation will provide a brief overview of the recent applications of social media data analysis in public health. The second half of this presentation will be a work-in-progress presentation of our group's recent analysis on Weibo data, a Chinese equivalent of Twitter. While social media may facilitate potential disease outbreak detection, I would suggest that they also allow public health professionals to better understand online public health communications, in both quantitative and qualitative manners.

Date Description
Mar 27 10:00 am—Apr 4 05:00 pm 2014 UCF STEAM Exhibition Visual Arts Building (VAB)
The UCF STEAM Exhibition presents paintings, posters, prints, photographs and 3D artworks created by UCF fine arts students in visual response to presentations by UCF scientists and their students. The exhibition includes visualizations and illustrations of cutting edge research and compelling artworks that both celebrate and question the social, cultural and political opportunities and ramifications of technological advancements in science and engineering. The show offers new visual evidence to the Orlando Regional Public that “A” should be added to the current worldwide emphasis on STEM teaching to create STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, ARTS and Mathematics. “The knowledge, skills, attitudes and behavior students acquire from studying the arts have been identified by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and other organizations as the skills needed to be successful in the global economy. These skills include creativity and innovation; critical thinking and problem solving; communication and collaboration; flexibility and adaptability; and social and cross cultural skills”. (Ohio Alliance for Arts Education) The UCFSTEAM exhibition is sponsored by the UCF ICubed Project. ICubed is a National Science Foundation funded project. ICubed’s mission is to encourage new and increased STEM research and education activities at UCF and to effectively communicate STEM research to UCF’s stakeholders. The UCFSTEAM Exhibition is one of the ways to communicate UCF STEM research to UCF’s stakeholders. ABOUT UCF’s ICubed STEAM Project: One of the objectives of ICubed is to inform the UCF Community about scientific and engineering concepts. The project is accomplishing this objective by funding the UCFSTEAM Gallery which is an activity that encourages STEM faculty and their students to collaborate with Art and Design faculty and their students to create STEM inspired artifacts (including sculptures, paintings, illustrations, and posters). ICubed is successfully integrating the STEAM activities into existing photography, illustration, music composition, and painting courses. Furthermore, through a team collaboration approach, involving STEM students and Art and Design students, posters depicting STEM research, have been created and are being created. Select artworks from these efforts are being preserved by the ICubed project for a traveling exhibition displaying science inspired art. http://icubed.ucf.edu/steam.php
