Salud!

Salud! is a web-based platform for supporting health self-management. It allows users to track personally-relevant aspects of their everyday life, and provides visualization and analytics tools with which to make sense of the resulting datasets. The unique feature of Salud! is that it provides goal management features that are based on successful strategies culled from research in behavior change research. Please visit the Salud! Homepage for more information.
Salud! is currently being deployed with fitness trainers and their clients in the Georgia Institute of Technology Fitness Program (G.I.T. FIT).
