Meet our newest Partners: Yabbit, the digital health assistant!

We at African American Wellness Project collaborate with new and changing technologies to improve the lives of African Americans and Underserved Communities. One of our newest partners is Project Vision, which is looking to bring digital health into your hands. 

 

Do you have high blood pressure?

A family history of diabetes?

Perhaps your doctor has recommended you lose weight?

Easier said than done, right?

Keeping up a healthy new diet or workout routine is hard even with free time and plenty of money.  Add in the reality of day to day life, and the hard can be almost impossible.Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 1.22.28 PM

We created Yabbit as a personal assistant to help you find the small things you can do to live each day just a little bit healthier.  It provides personalized suggestions based on your past choices and your surrounding environment.  It also shares your progress with your doctor and care team.  No more one-size-fits-all advice – Yabbit is designed to help you get assistance tailored to your unique needs.

Yabbit is currently only available through select health providers, so ask your doctor about getting enrolled.

How Does It Work?

Getting started is easy!  After 5 minute assessment on the app which helps us better understand your unique starting point, we will start providing you with daily suggestions for diet, fitness and stress reduction.  No data entry, no meal logging.  Just 3 simple daily suggestions that are easy to complete and tailored to your specific health needs.

The app learns your preferences over time based on the specific suggestions you complete, as well as by tracking your location and learning about your overall environment.  Data is also shared with your doctor and care team so that they can better understand your needs and progress between visits.

For updates and well as suggestions for healthy activities local to the SF Bay, follow us on Facebook and Twitter
