Project HealthDesign is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Pioneer Portfolio.  They have generously funded our work on FitBaby for the next two years with a grant to PI Gillian Hayes and Co-PI Karen Cheng (one of our amazing collaborators from Charles Drew University).   Project Health Design is focused on the use of ODLs to support chronic care.  Here is a little excerpt on ODLs from the Project Health Design website:

Observations of Daily Living (ODLs)

Observations of daily living are sensations, feelings-thoughts-attitudes, and behaviors that occur in the course of everyday life – such as sleep patterns, diet, exercise levels, pain episodes, and mood – that are not typically part of one’s clinical record, but are critical to managing an individual’s health and guiding their treatment.
