March 29, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$20 – $45

Emerging technology is changing the way we live. Nowhere is this more apparent than with advances in healthcare. Technology is connecting patients, caregivers and healthcare companies. Doing so empowers all parties with data to make better decisions.

Join us on March 29th to hear about some of the most exciting wearable technologies on the front wave of transformation in healthcare. From devices that measure brain activity and track workouts, to systems that stimulate muscles to minimize workouts, to body sensors and voice-activated collaborative care solutions that help improve patient engagement and quality of care, the possibilities are near endless. Do today’s realities measure up to the promises? Where are they exceeding expectations?

Dr. Joseph Kvedar, vice president of connected health at Boston-based Partners HealthCare, will provide the evening’s opening remarks. He will be followed by leading entrepreneurs and innovators in the connected healthcare space who will showcase emerging technologies, including:


  • Neumitra: Founder and CEO Rob Goldberg — Embedded biomodules help measure and manage the autonomic nervous system.
  • Humon: Co-founder Allesandro Babini — The first wearable that measures oxygen levels within muscle, providing real-time feedback to optimize workouts and perfect training.
