Kids in school want to make friends, be liked by their teachers (or just stay out of trouble) and kind of know what’s going on in their classes. They really just want to fit in. But for military kids, that can be hard to do. They move often. Families get separated by deployments.

Few people think about traumatic brain injury (TBI) unless they have one or know someone with one. Sure, you’ve heard about people getting TBIs during deployment in a war zone.

This April, Guard Your Health will launch FitText, an optional text-messaging initiative centered on preparing for the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) and supporting overall fitness among Army National Guard (ARNG) soldiers and their families.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked this question. Here at T2, my job is to keep track of all the published research on apps that’s out there, and this means that I’m constantly on the lookout for randomized controlled trials, reviews, qualitative studies and other reported research related to apps.

T2 will host a team from the Institute of Health & Biomedical Innovation in Australia on Wednesday, October 15. The researchers and developers will visit T2 to discuss issues in mobile health, how to integrate e-health into health care, explore the future of the field and consider potential collaboration.
