PRC Seminar: "Developing a Digital Tool to Promote Fluid Intake and Prevent Recurrence of Kidney Stones"

David Conroy, Ph.D., Professor of Kinesiology and Human Development & Family Studies, Penn State

  • Tuesday February 18, 2020 from 12:00 pm–1:00 pm
  • 312 Biobehavioral Health Building

Kidney stones are a painful condition and increasing fluid intake is a key to preventing recurrence. Yet many patients struggle to drink enough fluids to meet prevention guidelines. This talk will present emerging work from an interdisciplinary collaboration between behavioral scientists, urologists, and computer scientists to develop sipIT, a connected digital intervention for promoting fluid intake among patients with kidney stones.

About the Presenter: 

David Conroy's research focuses on achievement motivation, with a particular concentration on within-person dynamics of motivation and health behavior to develop precision behavioral interventions; how automatic motivation processes improve health behavior.
