Our summit conference is, and always will be, about “THE FUTURE OF HEALTH”. The  specific theme for 2021 is LIFE: RESTART.

The theme of the event is LIFE: RESTART and it is meant to cover the past (2010 – 2019), the present (Coronavirus pandemic), and the future (2022 – 2040) of digital health. 

The summit’s theme is also meant to cover the impact of digital technologies in a person’s life from the time before they are born, through childhood, adulthood, aging, death and even after death. Some call it “Individualized Medicine from Prewomb to Tomb” while others call it “From Lust to Dust”.

APPLY TO SPEAK if you are a fantastic story teller, a misfit, a clinician, a nurse, an entrepreneur, an amazing designer, a patient, a remarkable educator, or a crazy scientist who knows how to handle the next pandemic. We also want to hear from poets, architects, musicians, or other agents of change with interesting and relevant stories to share. 

Areas os interest: the future of advanced research, genomics and sequencing, aging and longevity, AI and robotics, VR/AR/XR in healthcare and wellness, mental health, women’s health, wearables and biosensors, serious video games, gamification and entertainment, design thinking, social impact, smart investing, human-machine interfaces, inequality and injustice, new business models, digital therapeutics, and secret (under the radar) digital health technologies. 

Check out our 100+ remarkable talks and highlights we recorded in the past eight years on our Vimeo Pro Channel.
