Coventry University’s Health Psychology local interest group is hosting a guest talk and discussion on the use of (smartphone/tablet/web) apps in Health Psychology. This will include a presentation from Kristina Curtis about the development of her app for childhood obesity as well as a discussion of some of the key benefits and challenges to using apps.
This will be on 21st November at lunchtime (exact time and location to be confirmed shortly).
The meeting is being organised by Dr Naomi Bartle under the auspices of the Midlands Health Psychology Network Local Interest Group (MHPNLIG!)
Pleased to be welcoming another guest speaker (and recent graduate of our health psych masters) today, in M145PY Introducing Professional Practice 3.30-5.30 in JA115.
Puja Joshi, now a Research Officer with The National Children’s Bureau, will be giving a guest session on systematic reviews. This supports your coursework assignment on the first professional practice module. Puja will also be telling you about an opportunity to collaborate with her. This may well take the form of writing one or more reviews.
Looking forward to seeing you later today (after your Stress, health and Illness lecture 1-3 which is just up the corridor in JA153).
After a bit of thinking about weather, day length and lots of significant events in the MSc health psych extended family … we’ve settled on Tuesday 6th May 2014 for our ‘Sweet Sixteen’ Course Reunion/Birthday celebration. This is the day before the BPS Annual Conference in Birmingham.
Please save this day in your diaries and keep in touch for further news of the event.

Looking forward to meeting you then.
The next Midlands Health Psychology Network Local Interest Group meeting will be Wednesday 26th June at 1pm here at Coventry University. This will be in Richard Crossman Building First Floor RC123.
