Global Health Journal Club: Mobile Health

Thursday, March 10th, 2022 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm (ET)
This has ended.


Please join us this Thursday, March 10th, from 12:00-1:00 pm for a Global Health Journal Club, Mobile Health: Technologies in Healthcare, which will be led by MS4 Kaiwen Su.


As mobile devices and trackers become more prevalent in all regions around the globe, mobile health has changed the traditional way people can take care of their health. People now have the option, whether they are home or on the road, to meet with their doctors remotely and receive the necessary health recommendations. Thus, healthcare can be delivered more readily to a larger target population, alleviating the burdens of transportation and long wait times. Mobile health may also aid in promoting healthier lifestyles in the community. However, the benefits of mobile health are not yet equally distributed. In this journal club, we will discuss innovations and the state of the art of mobile health, barriers and disparities in mobile health and how we may overcome them.

 Discussion Questions

1.       What does mobile health mean to you?

2.       What are some types of mobile health?

3.       What are barriers to mobile health and how we can address them?

4.       What are some concerns and disparities about mHealth?

5.       What can we do to promote the development of mHealth globally?
