TecHealth

The Technology Center to Promote Healthy Lifestyles (TecHealth) is a South Carolina SmartState Center focused on research to develop and evaluate health promotion programs which encourage healthy lifestyles and reduce risk of disease by incorporating technology. 

New and emerging technologies hold great promise for creating novel intervention approaches, as well as enhancing existing interventions with the addition of technological elements. Technology affords the ability to expand geographic reach of evidence-based interventions and to access underserved populations with programs which promote healthier lifestyles. The TecHealth research portfolio includes projects that address these domains, as well as efforts to explore how technology can be used to improve the assessment of lifestyle behaviors. TecHealth is also focused on training of the next generation of scholars who seek to promote healthy lifestyles through the use of technology.
