Professionals' Association (MI-UPA) are joining over 170 other locations in
35 countries to promote World Usability Day. This is also MSU's Fifth Annual

The focus for World Usability Day 2007 is healthcare. Whether it's new
medical devices or technologies; drug research, approval, or delivery;

increasing the functionality of hospitals; or everyday healthcare delivery,
EVERYONE is affected by usability in healthcare.
