From the Quantified Self Public Health Symposium

Stephen Downs, Chief Technology and Information Officer at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation looks forward to the day when healthy choices are easy choices. That day may not be tomorrow, but identifying the early adopters, innovative thinkers, and technological disruptors can move us closer to that healthier world. In this short talk Stephen explains why the foundation decided to support the Quantified Self movement.

“One of the things you can do in philanthropy as a funder is find new and exciting sources of energy and tap into them, because social change comes from that. There’s an opportunity to leverage the data that are generated by millions and millions of people about their day to day experiences to transform health, health care research, and how health care is delivered.”
