Real-Time, Web-Based Group Messaging with Convore

first_imgWithin each topic are a number of threads, and within these are conversations, updated in real-time. This makes Convore feel like a blend of forum and chat. When you log into the site, you can see the conversations that have occurred while you were offline, and – a great feature – when you step back in to chat, Convore scrolls to the point where you left off, so you can read to catch up.Culver is joined by co-founders Eric Florenzano and Eric Maguire. The three have built the real-time technology upon which Convore runs. It uses what Florenzano describes as “long polling, which means that on every page, the browser opens a connection that talks back to some proprietary technology we’ve built to speak to a cluster of Redis servers. We have some technology that parses each message for links, for embedded images, and constructs some structured data about the message, and then sends it out to everyone in the group via Redis.” You can sign up for Convore now and take it for a spin.

Currently, based on the activities of the alpha-testers, the topics of the public groups veer towards tech, movies, and “who’s up late at night coding,” but users are able to create their own.

Meet Our Presenters for the Webinar “International Lifestyle Recommendations for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

first_imgBIOGRAPHIES: Drs. Brittany Y. Jarrett and Annie W. Lin are registered dietitians with expertise in the role of nutrition in the pathophysiology and treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Both completed their doctoral training with Dr. Marla E. Lujan in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University and continue to collaborate on various projects. Their individual biographies can be found below. Brittany Y. Jarrett, PhD, RD is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY). She is passionate about nutrition and women’s health and has spent the last nine years studying their link in the context of PCOS. Her research involves the use of high-resolution ovarian ultrasonography to (1) characterize ovarian follicle development in PCOS and (2) clarify the effectiveness of weight loss to restore ovulatory function in patients with obesity. Brittany hopes that her group’s efforts will inform novel lifestyle-related therapies for reproductive function and ultimately promote the well-being of women across the lifespan. Brittany received her BS and PhD in Nutritional Sciences from Cornell University. During her PhD Program, she simultaneously completed Cornell’s Dietetic Internship through Cornell Cooperative Extension and University of Rochester Medical Center. She now lives in Chicago, IL. Annie W. Lin, PhD, RD is a National Cancer Institute Postdoctoral Fellow in the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. For the past six years, Annie has been investigating the associations between PCOS with diet, physical activity, and health-related beliefs (PubMed link). A recent publication has gained some media attention, particularly bringing attention to the importance of effective patient-provider communication in PCOS. Annie hopes that the research can be used as an advocacy resource for patients with PCOS and clinicians interested in understanding more about this condition. Annie completed the combined MS and Dietetic Internship program at Rush University Medical Center and her PhD in Human Nutrition at Cornell University. During her enrollment at Cornell, Annie participated as a Nutrition Evidence Library abstractor for the 2015 US Dietary Guidelines. Annie W.
