Fieldwork Completed for the Shanghai CalFit Beverage Study

Working with researchers from University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and the Shanghai CDC, we just finished fieldwork for a study of beverage consumption using the CalFit smartphone system.

We used the CalFit smartphone application to conduct surveys of beverages consumed by everyday people living in and around the city in Shanghai.  The study will compare beverage consumption recorded by phone versus methods used in the Chinese National Health and Nutrition Survey.  Additionally, the CalFit system will provide information on the spatial and temporal patterns of beverages consumed across urban and rural neighborhoods.
