Technology to Support Your New Year’s Resolution (Webinar)

January 5 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

- Free
Join us for Technology to Support Your New Year’s Resolution (Webinar) on Tuesday, January 5 at 1 PM.

We’ve all made them, but keeping them is another story. New Year’s Resolutions – whether it’s losing weight, de-stressing, turning over a new leaf or just getting past all of the drama of 2020, you might be ready for a fresh start now more than ever.

What technologies can you use to make 2021 a great year on your health journey? Join Dr. David Metcalf, director of UCF’s Mixed Emerging Technology Integration Lab (METIL), to explore simple tools that help keep us accountable and the technologies that might make it easier to track how well you are doing on those new year’s resolutions.

By participating in this program, you can expect to:

  • survey the landscape of available apps, podcasts, wearables, tools and programs that might be the right fit for you;
  • learn about inspiring success stories with this technology;
  • learn helpful techniques and tools that form habits, help us stick to them and make it easier to say yes or no to what is important to us.

This program is presented by Dr. David Metcalf and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
