Mount Sinai teams up with health tech company to tackle community youth health

Mount Sinai Health in New York City has partnered with mPulse, an artificial intelligence and digital health company, to increase diabetes awareness among young people in the East Harlem community, according to a June 22 press release.

The program will provide diabetes education for the youth of East Harlem through digital engagement by using mPulse’s mobile health activation platform. The program also includes an advisory board made up of young people who can influence content creation, managing goal setting and tracking. 

"There is a significant need for diabetes-related education and prevention within the East Harlem youth population, and by working with mPulse Mobile, we now have the ability to initiate sensitive and scaled digital conversations with this target population that gets them meaningfully engaged in managing their health," said Nita Vangeepuram, MD, assistant professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
