The Mobile Health Blog

We all need training at different points in our lives, whether it’s to learn to ride a bike or drive a car, or to stay current in a chosen career; it has to happen. For some, thinking about a training opportunity is uplifting and viewed as a time to engage in a new topic.

There’s a new trend going on in the mobile health world that’s definitely worth looking into – health trackers. No, I’m not talking about the grizzly-haired grandpas looking for furry creatures to make coats.
