Dear Workshop Participants,

WELCOME

Welcome to the University of Southern California! On behalf of the USC Institute for Global Health, I am honored our team is cohosting such an experienced and diverse group of international experts on our beautiful campus for the 2014 Global mWellness Workshop. This pioneering workshop embodies USC’s trans-disciplinary approach to global health. A university-wide initiative, the USC Institute for Global Health supports students and faculty from across the university in research, partnerships and the promotion of healthier communities worldwide. There is growing recognition that non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung disease, dominate health care needs and expenditure in all developed and most low and middle-income countries. NCDs cause an estimated 36 million deaths every year, including 9 million people dying prematurely before the age of 60. In recognition of this global threat, in 2012 the World Health Organization (WHO) partnered with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to launch the Be He@lthy, Be Mobile initiative, focusing on the use of mobile technology in preventing and controlling NCDs. Part of the initiative, the 2014 Global mWellness Workshop brings together a broad coalition of United Nations, government, academic and private sector partners to establish the practical steps needed to implement national programs targeting diet, physical activity, stress and risk factor management. With the number of mobile-cellular subscriptions approaching 7 billion worldwide, now is the time to take advantage of the growing capacity to drive behavior change through handheld devices. The next few days will be packed with meetings but we have included wellness breaks and a fun fitness competition to ensure we put our visions of wellness into practice. I hope you enjoy your time with us and I look forward to the productive conversations and partnerships in store. Let’s “Fight On” for mobile health!

Regards,

Heather Wipfli, Ph.D. (@hwipfli) Associate Director, USC Institute for Global Health Assistant Professor, Department of Preventive Medicine and School of International Relations University of Southern California
