Abstract
  • With the advent of new media technologies, eHealth applications have become a growing and promising form for health campaigns. These programs have provided an opportunity to engage LGBT populations and other disenfranchised communities in order to understand their health and information needs, and improve overall wellbeing of these groups. Using a mixed-methods analysis of a pilot mobile phone program in the Washington, D.C. area, this study seeks to understand how mobile technology aids homeless LGBT youth in navigating their daily lives, and how such technology might help improve health outcomes for these individuals.
