mHealth Symposium

Thank You for Attending the 2021 mHealth Symposium

Through this symposium, we brought together a community of mHealth researchers to share their experiences on various aspects of mHealth, including sensors and technology, practical issues of running mHealth studies, data management and analysis. 

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 precision public health.

Through this symposium, we aim to bring together a community of  mHealth researchers. 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.
