Using Mobile Technologies in Health Research at NIH
This session will focus on funding and training opportunities for mobile health technologies at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The use of mobile technologies to more rapidly and accurately assess and modify behavior, biological states and contextual variables (e.g., current activities, mood, and environmental factors), has the potential to improve health and transform how health research is conducted. In addition, these technological advances can also help elucidate mechanisms under...

Generating Evidence in MHealth
This session will focus on current issues in developing the empirical base for mHealth applications. The use of mobile technologies to more rapidly and accurately assess and modify behavior, biological states and contextual variables (e.g., current activities, mood, and environmental factors), has the potential to improve health and transform how health research is conducted. In addition, these technological advances can also help elucidate mechanisms underlying health and behavior change. F...
