Welcome to HealthMpowerment

HealthMpowerment (HMP) is a theory-based, status-neutral intervention designed to provide health and wellness information and resources relevant to young people via a mobile optimized platform.

HMP covers a range of health and lifestyle topics to support users’ diverse backgrounds and varying needs over time.

About HMP

HMP strives to be a state-of-the-art Digital Health Intervention platform. We are building a feature-rich platform that incorporates the latest behavior change research and the latest advances in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

A dedicated group of technologists and researchers work together daily to improve the platform and keep content up-to-date, fresh, and relevant. Leveraging a holistic view to health, HMP content covers topics ranging from traditional physical health such as HIV and STI prevention and treatment, depression, and nutrition, to social and environmental factors influencing health like housing, discrimination, faith, and spirituality.

HMP was created by Lisa Hightow-Weidman, MD, MPH, a public health scientist with extensive expertise in mHealth interventions.
