The Acti-Core supports the actigraphy needs of members of the CCHBD and the Center for Clinical and Translational Research (CCTR).

Actigraphy is a tool that can be used to objectively assess sleep-wake patterns and activity levels by having study participants wear an Actiwatch, a small watch-like device typically worn on the wrist.


The goal of the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Econometrics and Programming (BEEP) Core is to serve the technical needs of members of the CCHBD in a cost-effective manner, especially in the areas of statistical analysis, data management, surveys, web development and graphic design.
