mHealth Symposium 2018

mHealth: Sensors, Analytic Methods and Precision Public Health



Description: With rapid development in technology, mobile and wearable devices have been increasingly utilized in biomedical research. Wearable devices can provide substantially enhanced measurement and monitoring of modifiable lifestyle factors (e.g., physical activity, diet, smoking) and health conditions, while smartphone-based technology enables more effective, individualized, just-in-time interventions for health promotion and disease prevention. We anticipate that the use of mobile and wearable devices will become increasingly popular in public health research and mHealth will play a major role in transforming biomedical research in the era of precision medicine and precisin public health.

Through this symposium, we aim to bring together mHealth researchers around the Seattle area (e.g., Fred Hutch, UW, Sage, Microsoft) to share their experiences on various aspects of mHealth, including sensors and technology, practical issues of running mHealth studies, data management and analysis. We especially would like to facilitate collaborations between established mHealth researchers and those who are newer to the field and are interested in incorporating mHealth components in their research agenda.
