Research on health information has primarily focused on the needs of adults or parents of children with chronic illnesses or consumers. There is limited research on the health information needs of adolescents and the use of technology for meeting those needs. This is particularly important as the use of mobile technology has made a huge impact on communication, access, and information/resource delivery to adolescents, who are the largest age group of users of this technology. We conducted a series of studies with urban minority adolescents to understand their health information needs, their use of mobile devices for accessing health information and their use of mobile technology for adherence to new health behaviors. The purpose of this presentation will be to discuss adolescents use and perceived usefulness of mobile technology for accessing health information resources and for adhering to improved health behaviors.
