Webinar to focus on GPS, GIS and Geospatial applications
A webinar on "Recent Developments in GPS, GIS, and geospatial applications in measuring environment as related to health," will be presented 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 30, by Marta Jankowska, Ph.D., of the Qualcomm Institute at the University of California, San Diego.
About the webinar:
Spatial technologies are playing a key role in research studies aiming to consider contextual and environmental aspects connected with health. A recent development is the combined use of Global Positioning System (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to better measure patterns of access to and engagement with the environment. These combined technologies give more specific and accurate measurements of access and exposure than the use of GIS alone.

Videos now available from Mobilize Center's mHealth Connect
The Mobilize Center at Stanford University sponsored mHealth Connect, a day-long workshop aimed at improving the use of physical activity wearables and apps for clinical purposes.
The workshop brought together device and app developers with a diverse group of clinicians and researchers in order to foster cross-understanding, seed collaborations, and identify key barriers and next steps to advance this field. Sessions were held in March and streamed online. Videos of the sessions have now been posted on the Mobilize Center's YouTube channel and are linked below:
