Sent on: Wednesday, July 2, 2014 10:46 AM

Hey QSers,

Building off the success of The Quantified Patient event last year this year I'm heading up an event that will focus on designing for healthy behavior change within the digital health space.

Hope to see you there,





Event Details:

DIGITAL HEALTH: Designing for Behavior Change

This unique event will feature forward thinking entrepreneurs, researchers and companies who are redefining the digital health space through the use of self-tracking systems, behavior change psychology, and human analytics.



6pm- Networking with refreshments

7pm- Presentations

8pm- Moderated Panel Discussion

Stephen Intille, PhD - Director of the mHealth research group,Northeastern University

Stephen Intille, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the College of Computer and Information Science and Bouvé College of Health Sciences at Northeastern University. His research focuses on the development of novel healthcare technologies that incorporate ideas from ubiquitous computing, user-interface design, pattern recognition, behavioral science, and preventive medicine. Areas of special interest include technologies for measuring and motivating health-related behaviors, technologies that support healthy aging and well-being in the home setting, and mobile technologies that permit longitudinal measurement of health behaviors for research, especially the type, duration, intensity, and location of physical activity. After ten years as Technology Director of the House_n Research Consortium at MIT, in 2010 he joined Northeastern University to help establish a new transdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Personal Health Informatics.


Natasha Schüll, PhD - Associate Professor in the Program in Science, Technology, and Society, MIT - Author of Addiction by Design: Machine Gambling in Las Vegas

Natasha Dow Schüll is a cultural anthropologist and associate professor at MIT’s Program in Science, Technology, and Society. Her recent book, ADDICTION BY DESIGN: Machine Gambling in Las Vegas draws on extended research among compulsive gamblers and the designers of the slot machines they play to explore the relationship between technology design and the experience of addiction. Her current, ongoing research concerns the rise of digital self-tracking technologies and the new modes of introspection and self-governance they engender. Schüll graduated Summa Cum Laude from UC Berkeley’s Department of Anthropology in 1993 and returned to receive her PhD in 2003. Schüll held postdoctoral positions as a Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society Scholar at Columbia University’s Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy, and as a fellow at NYU’s International Center for Advanced Studies.
