Abstract:

The mHealth Impact Lab of the Colorado School of Public Health on the CU Anschutz Campus has been at the forefront of building the scientific evidence for digital health technologies, with research on interventions that are delivered via the Internet, social  media, text messaging, and apps. In this talk, Bull will review this  work and consider emergent opportunities to improve health promotion, care and self-management using technology.
