mHealth Global is the University of Washington’s space for faculty and select students to discuss works in progress related to mHealth in the global health space. The driving idea behind the group is to bring together the various groups on campus working on the development, measurement and scaling up of mHealth technologies in resource limited settings. Rather than serve as a simple seminar series, this group aims to be truly interactive and result in an authentic exchange of ideas and experiences which will result in superior science and outcomes.
Works in progress, collaboration brainstorming, discussions of best and worst practices, as well as strategies and methods to measure impact and take effective tools to scale, all inform this group. mHealth Global also serves as an informal platform to connect individuals across schools and departments and foster innovative, cutting edge research to better health and humanity.
mHealth Global began in March of 2017 and meets monthly. Group members volunteer to discuss their works in progress, as feasible and appropriate.
