Lunch and Learn

Noon - 1:00 pm
1200 Pressler, Room 102-A
Dr. Michael Businelle will provide a brief overview of his research that has focused on using mHealth to identify and intervene upon mechanisms that link socioeconomic disadvantage to smoking lapse. He will then discuss the OTRC Mobile Health Technology (mHealth) Shared Resource which facilitates the development of advanced mobile applications that aim to identify and intervene upon environmental, cognitive, affective, physiological, and behavioral antecedents of risk factors (e.g., smoking, heavy alcohol use, obesity, medication non-adherence) that are linked to cancer and other chronic conditions. Applications facilitate data capture in real-time in real-life technologies (e.e., smartphone based self-report assessments, wearable activity monitors, global positioning data, other bluetooth enabled devices). This resource enables the rapid translation of innovative research ideas into cost-effective and highly disseminable applications (77% of Americans now own smartphones).
Faculty, research staff, and students are encourages to come hear this informative presentation followed by a brief question and answer session. Lunch will be provided to the first 25 attendees.
