Hey Sacramento, want to impact health, medical devices, healthcare IT, wearables, biotech, fitness, mobile health, biomedical research & technology, pharma, patient experience and anything health-related? Tickets are now officially available for Startup Weekend Sacramento: Health Edition. As part of the organizing team for this event I’m excited to start promoting awareness of it and sharing content about it.

What’s special about this event?

This event will focus on Health/Healthcare because they present significant challenges in our society, they have great business potentials, and because the Sacramento region is recognized as a hub for health and healthcare innovation and medical technology.

Our goal is to bring together the healthcare community, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, doctors, nurses, engineers, med techs, patients, etc. to facilitate the formation of new ideas. We all face challenges like rising costs and transparency or finding ways to make better personal health decisions. We wish to bring in new technologies and ideas that have the potential to improve the healthcare system and positively impact health in general.

We aim to engage public and private companies and organizations that are involved in the healthcare system, as well as inventors of technologies, software developers, designers and students with interests in Healthcare, eHealth, Mobile Health, Health Technology, Digital Health, or anything related to health.

As part of the organizing team for this event I’ll be heading up the marketing efforts to publicize and share content about this event. This will include creating all kinds of digital web content for the event, as well as some occasional print material.
