An explosion of affordable commercial wearable sensing devices and mobile health applications has opened up new possibilities to practice self-Tracking and enjoy its benefits. However, elders often do not engage with health tracking technologies because they do not see much benefits. Leveraging the inherent reciprocal relationship among family members is one potential approach to promote the practice of health tracking. In this paper, we aim to understand and support intergenerational sharing of health data as a collective and collaborative family project of mutual support. Based on interviews and scenario-based focus group discussions, we report on family members' understanding of one another's health and well-being, their current healthrelated practices, and issues around health management as a means to facilitate intergenerational health collaboration.
