NASA Announces Launch Of Human Health And Performance Center
 
 
WASHINGTON -- NASA has established a global forum for organizations interested in advancing human health and performance innovations in space and on Earth. NASA's Human Health and Performance Center (NHHPC) will give members an opportunity to collaborate, network and share information.

NHHPC members include NASA centers and partners, industry, academic institutions, government agencies and nonprofit organizations. Members will work together to advance human health and performance innovations for spaceflight, commercial aviation and any challenging environment on Earth.

"The NHHPC provides a collaborative forum for many diverse organizations to develop innovative approaches to human health and performance issues in challenging environments," said Jeffrey R. Davis, M.D., director of the NHHPC and director of the Space Life Sciences Directorate at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. "The NHHPC offers an opportunity to share knowledge and best practices and to develop projects so that member organizations can collaborate in addressing those issues most important to them."

NHHPC's first event will be a workshop titled "Collaborative Innovation: Strategies and Best Practices," which is scheduled for Jan. 19 in Houston. NHHPC members and guest speakers will address how to use various innovative approaches to achieve member organizations' goals. A WebEx broadcast of keynote speakers will be available.
