Abstract

For my capstone project I created a mobile web application to help promote the Healthy Monday initiative. This is a program on campus that is run by the Learner Center for Public Health Promotion that encourages student and people in the community to start the week with healthy lifestyle choices. Healthy Monday’s website states: “Healthy Monday is a national initiative to help end chronic preventable diseases by offering weekly prompts and programs to support people and participating organizations in starting and sustaining healthy behaviors. Healthy Monday is a public health initative founded in 2005 in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Clumbia Mailman School of Public Health, and Syraucse University Maxwell School of Citizenship Affairs.” The mobile web application provides information that focuses on the Syracuse area including Syracuse fitness classes and restaurants promoting Healthy Monday.

The main purpose of the mobile app is as the website is updated, the mobile interface updates automatically. In order to complete this, the mobile web application was built in Cascade, Syracuse’s enterprise web content management system, referencing the key components of the current website which allows for both the traditional website and mobile web application to be updated simultaneously.
