TARGET USER POPULATIONS High School Students o Freshman and Sophomore Females College Students o Freshman and Sophomore Females o Junior and Senior Males
CHARACTERISTICS Chronic illness Behavioral health need Acute illness Latino Black/African- American White Rural college campus Urban college campus High school
PERSONA 1 Black/African-American female Freshman or sophomore in college Has a chronic illness Attends college in an urban environment Name: Kayla Johnson
SCENARIO 1 Today is Kayla's yearly appointment with her primary care physician (who happens to be her pediatric doctor, she still has yet to find another doctor for this stage in her life). She makes this appointment to renew the prescription for her inhaler, used to control her asthma. Her doctor's appointment is the one time each year she has the opportunity to ask questions regarding her illness. The waiting time before her appointment allows her the opportunity to ask questions using the app we created regarding her asthma and not be embarrassed or scared to do so. The questions allow for a true and honest conversation between Kayla and her doctor that leads her to better manage her asthma.
PERSONA 2 Caucasian female Freshman or sophomore in suburban high school Usually healthy; currently has mono Keeps a busy schedule with academics and extracurriculars Has on again, off again boyfriend Says she would "just die without her cell phone" Name: Melissa Bridges
SCENARIO 2 Melissa has been feeling run down over the last few weeks. She has been staying up nights to catch up on studying. Lately she is feeling increasingly fatigued and her throat is sore. She uses the internet to search her symptoms. Someone on Yahoo! Answers board on mono suggest an app to a previous poster that gives you a list of helpful questions to ask your doctor at your visit. You can customize the app to better suit your pre-existing condition, or it will tailor suggestions for your symptoms.

This way Melissa is prepared and better educated with mono symptoms and treatments even before she sees a doctor. She can also use the app to optimizer her post-visit care.
