In mid-May, CICATS staff Dr. Helen Wu and Megan Wing attended the UConn Center For mHealth and Social Media Conference. The topic of the conference was Digital Health at the Intersection of Academia and Industry and featured engaging remarks on issues such as app development, the use of virtual reality in health care, and online research networks. Dr. Wu and Megan presented a poster about CICATS Just Us Moving Project (JUMP) which aims to improve diabetes control by reducing the hemoglobin A1C levels of people in African/Black and Hispanic/Latino American communities by encouraging increased physical activity. JUMP utilizes a mobile health tool called Fitabase and is considering development of an app.
