MobileMonday Belfast: New Developments in mHealth

Mobile Monday Global Network

On the 29th April Mobile Monday Belfast will be the 15th Mobile Monday chapter to host a mHealth themed meeting “New Developments in mHealth” from 2pm-5pm at the Strand Cinema, Holywood Rd, Belfast.

I’ve presented now at three of these (click here to watch the presentation I gave at the first mHealth themed event in Amsterdam back in January 2010) and find the growing number of events represents an interesting barometer of how mHealth interest is growing and focus differs amongst the mobile developer community around the world:

Amsterdam, Jan 2010

Amsterdam was first with a dedicated mHealth focus and they did the best job of it to date posting well edited videos of all the speakers. Click here for my review, click here to watch the videos of the event.
