Preparing for my visit to next week’s eHealth Week event at London Olympia (19-20th April 2016) I had this highlighted list of mHealth talks/exhibitors made up as it’s a big event with overlapping tracks and a huge exhibitor space and I don’t want to miss anything.

I thought it might be helpful to share it with readers in case you’re also going (please add a comment if you’re aware of anything I’ve missed and similarly if you’d like to meet up at the event).
