Project Protect

Reducing the effects of antibiotic resistant bacteria

In cooperation with Healthy House, the Project Protect Engineering Service Learning team built a mobile application to improve communication between healthcare providers and their patients. The app provides both text and verbal mediums in three languages, English, Spanish, and Hmong to address the needs of the multi-ethnic communities in Merced County.

Project Status

The app is being tested in four languages, English, Spanish, Punjabi, and Hmong to address the needs of the multi-ethnic communities in Merced County.  The app will be available for download on the Android App store by late March 2018.
