BostonCHI: Storytelling in Health Informatics

Register here:

BostonCHI presents a hybrid talk by Herman SaksonoAbstract
We live a storied life — people’s stories at present and in the past guide our future actions. Although this narrative mode of knowing complements the pragmatic mode, personal health informatics systems typically only support the pragmatic mode of knowing. In this talk, I will present my research on personal health informatics that uses storytelling to support health behavior in marginalized communities. These studies examined how storytelling technologies can amplify social connections and knowledge within the family and neighbors, thus supporting health behavior as a collective community effort.
