Wireless Health 2015 - Monitoring to Intervention: Actualizing Precision Medicine

The Annual Wireless Health Scientific Conference is hosted by the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance, a member-based trade association based in San Diego and in conjunction with an Organizing Committee comprised of renowned research faculty and with support from sponsors and WLSA Members.

The Wireless Health Conference series convenes the vanguard international research communities in Wireless Health technology and medical research with the rapidly expanding Wireless Health product and service industry, government leadership and policy makers. This conference provides the highest profile academic and industrial research forum for the new field of Wireless Health.

This event attracts more than 200 attendees from across the world, representing leading academic institutions, government agencies, clinical groups, NGO’s and non-profit organizations, mobile operators/carriers, and device and technology vendors.

© alexandermorozov.comWe had an amazing array of presenters including a sophomore in high school named Adam Yee who presented a full paper! The panels, presentations, and papers were outstanding and ranged from Aging to HIV. This year, the Wireless Health Conference broke registration records with 338 registrants. We broadcasted the conference live to all NIH global offices to try to include all in the discovery of new and cutting edge thinking and research in wireless health.

We thank those who attended, those who listened in to the live webcast, those who chimed in on social media and especially to our world-reknowned Steering and Technical Program Committee made up of the best and brightest in wireless health, engineering, scientific and medical research.

We are witnessing a ground swell of support from all research, science, medical and engineering practices and hope you will encourage your friends and colleagues to join us next year!

Don’t forget to take the Wireless Health Conference Survey and tell us what you thought about this year’s conference!
