For those of you unable to attend Thursday’s workshop at the Center for Total Health held by NASA on the topic of Applications Benefiting Life in Space and on Earth, we hope you were able to follow much of the Twitter conversation. You can see what people had to say by searching Twitter via the hash tag #NASAhealth.
Here are a few photographic highlights of the day’s activities.
The Center for Total Health Blog was in Boston this week for Health 2.0’s Spring Fling event, and we sought out up-and-coming innovators in the health space to hear what they are working on and what we can expect in the near future. Over the next week, we’ll be posting interviews from the event, and today, we kick that off with our conversation with Hemi Weingarten, CEO of Fooducate.
Back in February when the blog was reporting from HIMSS, we asked Matthew Holt—founder of The Health Care Blog’s co-founder of Health 2.0—to tell us about one of his latest favorite apps, and he gave us an informal demo of Fooducate. Weingarten goes a bit deeper, sharing the inspiration for the application, what’s on the horizon for Fooducate (apps for folks with food allergies and diabetes), and a short demonstration of some of its features.
Fooducate is available on iOS and Android devices, and it was selected as Apple’s Best App of 2011 in the Health & Fitness category. They have their own blog with helpful advice on navigating the world of nutrition labels and making healthy choices. Check it out here. You can also follow them on Twitter— @Fooducate.
