Akeiylah DeWitt

3rd year PhD
Affiliation: Human-Centered Design and Engineering, Western University

Research Focus/Background: Mobile health technologies (apps, texting programs, mobile-optimized websites, etc.), early childhood health promotion, the role of health disparities and health equity in technology design
Problem/goals to address as part of CERES: I look forward to collaborating with other scholars in the CERES network, specifically to understand the ecosystem of factors that are relevant in child and family health. My stance is that systems-level change is often necessary to promote health equity, and that collaboration between disciplines can move us in that direction.
Location of Research Projects: King County in Washington State
When Not Working: You can find me kite flying, playing weird instruments, or enjoying family time!
