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.
