Title:
The need for culturally-tailored smartphone applications for weight control.
Authors:
Coughlin, Steven S.; Hardy, Dale; Caplan, Lee S.
Abstract:
Approximately 35% of U.S. adults are obese, and this rate is expected to increase by almost 50% by 2030. New media such as smartphone applications (apps) provide a useful and low-cost way to disseminate weight control information. For many culturally distinctive population subgroups, however, there is currently an absence of research-tested smartphone apps for weight control.
