mHealth Training Institute accepting applications

Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 mHealth Training Institute, to be held August 8-12 at UCLA.

The 5-day training institute brings together leaders in mobile technology and health sciences for a cross-training event for investigators with interest in mHealth. The training curriculum will cover the current state of the science in mobile technology computing and engineering, behavior change and clinical applications, and highlight the intersection among these areas for research related to health. Daily didactic sessions will target the major cross-cutting research issues. Afternoons will be devoted to small, interdisciplinary teams developing potential mHealth research projects, guided by multidisciplinary mentorship teams.

Attendance is limited to 30 mHealth professionals chosen from a  pool of applicants. Applications are due Feb. 27, and should be submitted via this link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=2016mhtiucla.
