DOGNOD will inspire teens-both with and without chronic health conditions-to live an optimal life by revolutionizing personal health records to be inclusive of individual needs, dreams, and aspirations.

Our 18-month study, entitled Living Profiles, is funded by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and is part of their national program, Project HealthDesign. In keeping with the values of this project, we are committed to open-source technology and human-centered design.

40 teenagers living in California and Pennsylvania are participating in the study. Through interviews and expressive activities we hope to learn what motivates and inspires them towards healthy living. Our research findings will return to the South Campus Research Lab for analysis and interpretation. By the end of 2007, we plan to field test our concepts for a teen health records system and refine our prototype for national review in 2008.
