Quantified Self Public Health Symposium

February 2, 2016


Many participants in Quantified Self meetings around the world are involved improving public health as researchers, policymakers, clinicians, and community leaders. Once a year, we convene a Quantified Self Public Health Symposium to explore how we can better support new discoveries about ourselves and our communities. With the next meeting coming up in May, we thought we’d link to some of the materials from the 2015 Quantified Self Public Health Symposium, which we’ve posted in the QS Public Health channel on Medium.

This meeting is by invitation only, but it is not hard to get an invite: If you are working on public health research or have another kind of contribution to make to this discussion, please take a look at the Quantified Self Public Health Symposium website and be in touch if you’d like to come.

THE QUANTIFIED SELF is about making personally relevant discoveries using our own self-collected data. We call this practice everyday science, a name that emphasizes its nonprofessional character. Lately, we've been organizing small group projects that show how collaboration can make individual projects easier. Today we're publishing a detailed white paper documenting the design and implementation of our recent "Bloodtesters" PLR, hoping it will be useful to others who follow in our footsteps.
