“The future of medicine is in your pocket. Show up for an hour and find out just how big this mHealth revolution is going to be!
We’ll talk about apps that transform heart beats into music, turn boring breathing exercises into exciting games, and help you meditate like a Tibetan monk.
We’ll dig into the Quantified Self and “gamification” (think FitBit, Nike Fuel, and MyBasis). There will be discussions about how mobile tech is revolutionizing our approach to diseases like diabetes. And we’ll try to understand how rapid mobile adoption could help the third world make great strides in public health.
The panel will feature startup CEOs like Nadeem Kassam (Basis), influential investors like Daniel Kraft (Singularity University), and leaders in third world innovation like Priya Agrawal (Merck for Mothers).
We’ll also find out what mHealth means for you now – how can you change your approach to taking care of your family’s health more easily today?”
Breaking the mould for mHealth events SXSW will host a session titled “Take Two Apps & Call Me in the Morning” – the first ever mHealth talk to be sponsored by Beer, Soda and Potato Crisp brands!
Obviously I think the title would’ve worked better had it been “Take Two Apps & Video Call Me in the Morning” but it’s a great indication of the appeal of the mHealth opportunity to digital creatives and it will feature talks by Daniel Kraft, CEO, Singularity University, Priya Agrawal, Exec Director, Merck for Mothers and Sandeep Sood, CEO, Monsoon Company.
