UChicago App Challenge Colloquia Series: Dr. Melissa Gilliam

UChicago Tech and the UChicago Mobile App Challenge present Dr. Melissa Gilliam, Professor, Associate Dean in the BSD, and physician in the Medical Center.

Dr. Gilliam has worked with ITS to develop an iPad application that makes better use of a patient's time while in the waiting room. Gilliam's team wants to use this time to raise women's awareness of the most effective forms of contraception before meeting with a provider. The goal is to catalyze informed, empowered decision making about contraception with a deep degree of engagement.

The iPad application will be used in a pilot at a Planned Parenthood clinic serving low-income women at high risk of unintended pregnancy.
