Implications of Poetical Science for Advancing Health Equity through Information Visualization
English mathematician and writer Ada Bryon Lovelace developed the idea of “poetical science,” which emphasizes the importance of intuition and image in mathematics and science. This blend of the imagination and intellect functions on three key features: observation, interpretation, and integration.
Looking through the lens of "poetical science," Dr. Suzanne Bakken will describe a research program that uses information visualization to advance health equity among urban Latinos. This will include the integration of perspectives from the fields of health equity, nursing science, health literacy, and health communication.
This lecture is part of the NIH National Library of Medicine’s Ada Lovelace Computational Health Lecture Series.

Dr. Suzanne Bakken is the Alumni Professor of nursing and professor of biomedical informatics at Columbia University. Following her doctorate in nursing at the University of California, San Francisco, she completed a post-doctoral fellowship in medical informatics at Stanford University. Her program of research has focused on the intersection of informatics and health equity for more than 30 years and has been funded by AHRQ, NCI, NIMH, NINR, and NLM. Dr. Bakken’s program of research has resulted in more than 300 peer-reviewed papers. At Columbia Nursing, she leads the NINR-funded Precision in Symptom Self-Management Center and Reducing Health Disparities Through Informatics Pre- and Post-doctoral Training Program.
