Digital Wellness Lab created at Boston Children's Hospital

Techstination feature for Wednesday, March 31, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   What is being called a Digital Wellness Lab has been created at Boston Children’s Hopsital…to research and work with innovative companies in examining the effects of digital technology on our brains, bodies and behaviors.   Harvard Pediatrics Professor Dr. Michael Rich is the founder of the lab…

“We need to take a step back and take a good look from a public health lens, for physical, mental and social health, at exactly how we are changed in positive as well as negative ways by the screens we use and how we use them.”

The site…at  www.digitalwellnesslab.org has information about the research…as well as guides for parents….with info relating to a wide range of age groups…from toddlers to teens.     And with all of the pandemic screen time this past year, it’s more important than ever.

You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
