Social psychology shows that if you say thanks you're happier. Recently, Georgetown asked me to write a piece on my mentor-mentee relationship during grad school. You might know that I was an Innovation Fellow at the Office of the National Coordinator in 2010. While I was there, Special Assistant Wil Yu became my "Health IT and Innovation 101" guide. I definitely owe my health IT know-how to Wil and am certain that working with him changed the trajectory of my career (for the good!!!). Here's what I submitted to GU, it's a puff piece, but I think the gratitude comes through (their slightly modified post can be found here) (more…)
I spent my practicum at Georgetown working on a promotional plan for Text4baby. While I don't think they enacted my plan, my presentation was beautiful. I even bought a shirt that was that color pink!
Today was a big first in my life - the very first time I presented at a conference! I totally sent my mom this picture...
What was the presentation on? It was an overview of the opportunities that mHealth opens to us - specifically in helping manage, promote, and monitor health status in various populations. The presentation concluded with a "why is it important for students to understand the promise of mHealth?"
