Join us on Saturday 26th May in the Heidelberg Innovation Center in for an exciting afternoon of self-tracking presentations, app demonstrations, and conversation about the Quantified Self.
We’re thrilled to be able to have our meeting in this building close to the Central station (Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof). Come to connect with friends, meet new people, check out tools, and learn from personal self-tracking stories. Please RSVP as soon as you can.
14:00 – 14:30 WELCOME and INTRODUCTIONS
We’ll start with an intro about QS, and a short presentation about the Heidelberg Innovation Center.
14:30 – 15:30 SHOW&TELL TALKS*
QS Show&Tell talks are short presentations about a person’s self-tracking project and answer our three prime questions: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?
“What I would tell my 10 years younger self about personalized nutrition” (Wolfram S.)
Wolfram Stein will talk about what he learned regarding nutrition, dieting and programming by developing an app for a nutrition diary and testing and using it for himself. He surprised himself with better results than he ever dared dream of. He holds a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering and a PhD in Computer Science.
Reducing LDL cholestrol values by changing nutrition and lifestyle (Claus H.)
Elevated LDL cholestrol values are considered as one reason for developing of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore medical doctors often prescribe lipid-lowering medications. As long as the values are not out of the range, as is the case of familial hypercholesterolemia, a change of nutrition and lifestyle can help to reduce the LDL values without medication. But as every human body reacts differently, there is a need for check up of the items of change, the efficiency of different measures and how to proceed in order to get the desired results.
*Where our talks come from: Our talks come from you! Do you have a personal self-tracking story to share? Please let us know in your RSVP. There will be a projector if you need to show slides.
15:30 – 16:00 SOCIAL TIME
After some amazing presentations, we will have some time to converse with those around us.
Note: We will decide whether to conduct this meeting in English or German depending on the consensus of everyone at the meetup. Please let us know if you can participate, if we do not get participants (around 12) we will postpone the meeting probably into June 2018.
The venue for this Show&Tell is generously being provided by the Association of the Urban Innovation – Stadt neu denken! e.V., which has a program on ‘health and the city’. We couldn’t do these program without them. If you or your company are interested in sponsoring Quantified Self, or hosting a future Show&Tell at your office, please let us know
