The USC mHealth Collaboratory, co-directed by ICT’s Bill Swartout and directed by Donna Spruijt-Metz, hosted the Quantified Self Los Angeles (QSLA) Show & Tell Meetup in August at ICT. The PBS documentary “Future of You” featured experts and issues from the event. USC News also covered the meeting, noting that ICT is a supporter of the mHealth Collaboratory.
The USC mHealth Collaboratory, part of the USC Dornsife Center for Social and Economic Research, aims to foster a collaborative mHealth research community, support incubation for new ideas, and facilitate creative information exchange in mobile and connected health. We will kick off a series of mobile and connected health symposia/training events, bring together mHealth researchers across institutions to develop a West Coast mHealth Consortium, help junior researchers get their mHealth efforts off the ground, work with education programs to train in transdisciplinary science, and develop exciting relationships with industry.
