HopeLab – Increase Physical Activity in Tweens

Richard Tate, Director, HopeLab

Hopelab was started by Pam Omidyar of eBay pez dispenser fame, who designed its famous (and clinically validated) Re-Mission childhood cancer education game. Richard, who runs Hopelab’s public outreach, is here to show us a sneak preview of Zamzee, which aims to increase physical activity in tweens. Richard’s day job is a far cry from his role in corporate PR for Chiron, but it might remind him of one his editorial jobs at Buzz or The Advocate.

Behavior Change, Health 2.0, and The Unmentionables

Sponsored by collaborative care solutions provider, Alere is a global leader in rapid diagnostic testing devices in health management solutions aimed and tailored for payers, employers, and care providers. This panel is moderated by Susannah Fox, with the Pew Internet Project, and helps us get to some real answers to a basic question: How can technology contribute to the fundamental real health that we all know so well?
