Join us at Health 2.0 in Manchester for “How can mHealth transform the way healthcare is delivered?”

Health 20 Manchester How can mHealth transform the way healthcare is delivered

On Thursday 11 April 2013 I’m be presenting at Health 2.0 Manchester at the TechHub in Dale Street Manchester, UK.

Health 2.0 Manchester is a meetup group focused on innovations in the delivery of healthcare and health related technology that aims to share, discuss, showcase and develop ideas to improve patient care. The event is completely free to attend as the organisers rely on the generosity of sponsors who want to help support the Health 2.0 movement. For their April event the group will be exploring how mobile technology is changing the way healthcare is delivered and the opportunities this presents for startups.
