In conjunction with Department of Population Health Science and Policy at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, we helped design a mobile app that empowers East Harlem residents to improve their own health and the health of their community in the fight against Diabetes Type 2.
The app supplements a 10-week in-person workshop, Help Educate to Eliminate Diabetes (HEED). Its features and functionality were designed to deliver value including:
individual health tracking
local knowledge maps for locating fresh produce markets
access to healthy menus
ability to start and drive community action plans
