An article on Fortune’s website about a study my colleague Robert Furberg at RTI did. Some highlights:
- Fitness trackers tend to underestimate how much people walk.
- They also overestimate more vigorous activities like running and also sleep time.
- Still, despite the lack of precision, fitness trackers still serve a useful role in promoting physical activity.
HIV Risk Reduction Tool Helps People Understand HIV Risk and Strategies for Reducing Their Risk
Humbled to be on this team with Dr. Jen Uhrig and Jennie Harris to create a CDC tool for the public to understand how to reduce their chances of contracting HIV.
Public health gets least money, but does most
“Just three cents of each U.S. health care dollar goes to public health even though it plays a far bigger role in keeping Americans well than medical care…”
I love these ads from “The Real Cost” of cigarette smoking.
CDC this week launched the “Doing It” campaign to encourage HIV testing. I have to say I’m biased and love the campaign because I was involved in the initial formative research for it.
The campaign uses models that represent different ethnicities, genders, sexualities and races.
The campaign website includes different banner ads that organizations can put on their websites as well as printable materials.
