Obesity Canada’s 2019 Summit provided the perfect opportunity to profile the Aim2Be youth and parent companion m-health applications and share early evaluation results.
The Childhood Obesity Foundation hosted an exhibit to demo and discuss the apps with conference delegates. An oral abstract was presented by the Project Director, Janice Macdonald, RD on the most popular health aims and knowledge centre topics accessed by Aim2Be users. As well, a 2-hour workshop was jointly delivered on the topic of Digital and Group-based Solutions for Families by Janice and Karen Strange, Project Director of the BC Family Healthy Living program. A copy of the abstract and the digital portion of the power point presentation are available on the Childhood Obesity Foundation website.
The Aim2Be apps are currently available in the app stores but only for research participants at this point. Stakeholders will be advised when Aim2Be is publicly available.
Obesity Canada is a valued partner in this project providing in-kind knowledge exchange support. Other partners include Merck Canada, Ayogo, Heart and Stroke, Diabetes Canada, Craving Change, David Suzuki Foundation and Canadian Men’s Health Foundation.
