What is Lifeology?

Lifeology is an app that makes science and health information approachable, visual and highly accessible through scientist-reviewed illustrated mini courses, consisting of artistic digital flashcards. You can easily browse courses, connect with course authors and earn badges for completing courses.

Lifeology courses aren’t created in a vacuum. Lifeology brings together a community of scientists, storytellers, artists and audience reviewers to make science accessible to everyone. Lifeology helps scientists pair up with artists and storytellers to translate their work in a visual, bite-sized format so that more people can engage in scientific discovery.

Why Lifeology?

Science is unrelatable to most of us. We struggle to see how scientific information can help us in our daily lives. We have reason to be intimidated by scientific information – it is the jargon-filled stuff of textbooks and we often encounter it in settings that are intimidating and overwhelming, such as in a healthcare setting or when we’ve been diagnosed with a chronic disease.

But science is key to helping all of us navigate our daily lives and make important health decisions. We may may choose not to enroll in a clinical trial that could save lives because we don’t know what an MRI is or what it entails. We may not understand the importance of informing family members about a potentially harmful mutation that we discovered through genetic testing that we have. We may be basing our nutrition and other lifestyle choices on old scientific data (or no data at all).

Lifeology brings together a community of scientists, storytellers, artists and audience reviewers to make science accessible to everyone.

Science can radically improve our lives,but only if we feel comfortable engaging with it.
