Congratulations to Dr. Kendall Ho on his successful Lawson Foundation grant

Professor Kendall Ho recently received a grant from the Lawson Foundation for his project “Mobile Digital-health for Activity and Wellness – mDAWN Kids: Using online comics, mHealth and wearables for type 2 diabetes prevention for middle years children through their Diabetes Funding Strategy”.

Funding from this grant will engage school age children from Grade 4 to Grade 7 in learning digital health skills – learning how to find appropriate health information on the Internet, using apps and sensors appropriately, living healthily enabled by using technologies appropriately and not overusing.

The Lawson Foundation has awarded Dr. Ho and his team $220,000 over 2 years.
