 Time: Noon
 Place: Discovery 1, 915 Greene Street, Room 140
Speaker: Diane Ehlers, PhD


"Just-in-Time: Using Digital Technology and Real Time, Real World Assessment to Shift how Behavioral Scientists Design Interventions"

Dr. Diane Ehlers, Assistant Professor of Exercise Science at the Arnold School of Public Health, will introduce just-in-time assessments and interventions as promising platforms for studying and promoting health behaviors, using physical activity as an example.  Drawing on her research experience with middle-aged women and breast cancer survivors, she will discuss low-cost and innovative technologies that may be of interest to scientists with limited funding or with the need to augment larger studies.  Ehlers also will provide an overview of current topics, future directions, and challenges associated with just-in-time research.
 
Tech Tuesday Talks is a free, monthly seminar series bringing together researchers from across the USC campus who share an interest in technology-assisted health promotion and disease prevention interventions and research.  The series presents a forum to learn about one another’s work, spark collaborations, as well as introduce students to the ongoing research conducted on the USC campus which incorporates technology in health promotion.  All interested faculty, staff, students and the general public are invited to attend.  Tech Tuesday Talks are presented on the fourth Tuesday of the month in Discovery I Building, Room 140 at noon.  To learn more, visit http://techealth.sc.edu/tech-tuesday-talks or contact magradey@mailbox.sc.edu.
