Boston QS and Women's Health: Starting the Conversation

The Quantified Self movement consists of users and tool makers who have a shared interest in self-knowledge through tracking of habits, behaviors, and life activities. One of the major innovations that Quantified Self tracking and technology offers is the possibility to better understand and improve our health.

Boston QS and Women's Health: Starting the Conversation will focus on the intersection of the Quantified Self movement and women’s health. We’ll learn how self-tracking technologies are being created and utilized by members of the Boston QS community to make strides in reproductive health, pregnancy and childcare. We’ll end the evening with a guided discussion about other ways that these technologies are being used or could be used in the women’s health space.


6 - 7pm SOCIAL TIME

Meet fellow community members and enjoy healthy refreshments provided by Neumitra.


7 - 7:45pm PRESENTATIONS

Dulcie Madden - Co-Founder and CEO, Rest Devices
Empowering women in the developing world through self-tracking.

Jacqueline Thong - Co-Founder and CEO, Ubiqi Health
A self-tracking project on quantifying pregnancy, post-pregnancy, and newborns.

Jen MacLean - Business Development, Ovuline
How can self-tracking help women to better understand and control their reproductive health?


7:45 - 8:15pm BREAKOUT DISCUSSIONS

We’ll break out into groups to discuss our own ideas about self-tracking and technology in the women’s health space. Which challenges in women’s health are being addressed by QS right now, and which are not? Can we pinpoint opportunities for innovation and better health outcomes in women’s health using QS?

    Thank you everyone, especially the organizers and speakers. I greatly enjoyed this meetup and getting to know many of you.

    When you arrive at the CIC....enter the lobby, check in with security, take the elevators to the 5th floor, head to the Havana room. Hope to see you all there.

    I've used self tracking to loose 90 lbs, improve injuries, productivity, and mood. I'm very interested in combining QS technology with positive psychology to improve lives and businesses. Looking forward to my first QS meetup.
