The digital world moves fast. When the digital realm in question is the use of mobile devices, social media, and related technologies in medical research (mHealth), it isn’t always easy for researchers who use these tools to keep pace.
A new month is about to begin, so it seems fitting that this week’s research highlights have lots of “new” initiatives that we’re excited to report.
This spring, I had the pleasure of introducing the kickoff event for the new mHealth Research Affinity Group (RAG) in The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute.

Researchers at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute are always curious as they explore uncharted territories and tap new technologies. Read about the many novel ways they are looking to improve children’s health in the February issue of Bench to Bedside.
Research at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia never stops. To help keep you informed about new discoveries and CHOP researchers’ views on timely topics, we are bringing together a roundup of news highlights. Look for this as a recurring feature here on Cornerstone.
