Yesterday, on December 3, we had a lunch seminar on “E-health communities” at SYSLAB. I gave my view of the area and related to some of my research findings.
The seminar focused on e-health communities for people who suffer from established bad (unhealthy) habits, who try to lose weight or quit smoking. These communities aim at helping people change habits, and thereby reduce the risk of getting severe illnesses. The question is how these communities manage to support learning and behavioral change among the participants. During the seminar, I elaborated a bit on this theme and we had a nice discussion afterwards. The presentation slides are seen below.
