FREE WEBINAR: Add Evidence to Your mHealth App

Tuesday, November 7, 2017
12:00pm – 1:00pm

Storrs Campus

Numerous systematic reviews of health-related mobile apps reveal they lack evidence based content. A major challenge to including evidence based content in apps is how to efficiently find accurate, credible, and vetted content. The National Library of Medicine houses the largest biomedical library in the world and provides numerous expert-developed online resources on disease and health education. In this webinar, Susan Halpin of the National Library of Medicine will introduce attendees to those resources, give examples of how they can and have been used in mobile apps, and discuss funding opportunities offered by the NLM.

Objectives: Introduce you to the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and its free resources Demonstrate how NLM resources carry out the mission to improve public health through free digital websites, databases and other educational tools, health and medical training classes and grant funding opportunities Provide examples of how these health related resources can add value to your app
