Today mobile applications connect more people to health, wellness, and fitness information than ever before. How can librarians help consumers and patients navigate the growing field of wellness applications? Across all mobile platforms, fitness and health applications are some of the most popular and most frequently downloaded. By better understanding how to evaluate applications, librarians can help patients and patrons make informed decisions about the apps that they choose to download. This webinar focuses on understanding how to evaluate apps and provide information about recommended apps. Selected apps will be discussed.

Presenter: Emily Hurst, Head of Research and Education at Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences, Virginia Commonwealth University
