Women’s Health Week: Technology for Self-Care

Posted May 04 2011 8:24pm

Look around at passengers on your commute, your teenage children or even your co-workers as casual screen swiping seems to be more the focus of smartphones these days than voice communication! But have you ever considered such applications to be more than just games or productivity tools?

With more and more consumers turning to so-called “apps,” experts in the healthcare community have been paying careful and increasing attention as to how their audience thinks, plans and – now – interacts to improve their overall wellbeing.

With women as the key health decision makers in families today, women may see that the future of their wellbeing may lie in the hands of this simple but useful technology.

Join in the discussion as I welcome a panel of women’s health experts who have developed easy-to-use apps for healthy living. The show will feature renowned fitness expert Denise Austin whose self-titled app is packed with workouts, daily tips and more.

Denise and I will be joined by Gwynn Cassidy, the on-line director of HealthyWomen , our radio show’s content partner, to describe the nonprofit organization’s latest endeavor. Released in conjunction with National Women’s Health Awareness Week, the Passport to Good Health app tracks health and wellness information for women and their families.

And rounding out the show we’re proud to have Amy Brightfield, Woman’s Day health director, to share the magazine’s “Faith & Action” app which features inspirational daily messages along with actionable tips to impact your life.

Join REAL WOMEN ON HEALTH ONLINE RADIO SHOW on Thursday, May 12th with Kelley Connors, MPH, Women’s Wellness Coach and all our special guests as we celebrate National Women’s Health Week and new mobile technology that will help women take charge of their health…no matter where they are!

TO JOIN, CALL IN LIVE MAY 12 AT12:30 pm EST via 1-646-929-2625 or download after the show!
