About Me

  • About jjsgva
    My professional interests are on the use of information and communication technologies for health. My involvement in obesity and ultimately, diabetes, is through work in health promotion programs that focus on behavorial change especially for young children in the Pacific islands where some still perceive obesity as a symbol of wealth and fertility rather than a health issue. My doctoral studies are on social media and online communities and their contribution to discussions on obesity and diabetes, its effects, and treatment.

    Your experiences with diabetes
    My main experience with diabetes has been through family, school, and work and I never really thought it could happen to me. Having grown up in the Pacific islands where childhood obesity and diabetes are only too common, it has never struck me that I may be at risk for it.

    So here I am trying to do a little research, become more familiar with what having diabetes means in real life, and hopefully contribute to the many discussions down the road. Cheers!
