A new events page, and three top events for Fall innovation fun

We’ve updated our events page, and are now looking to create a long list of interesting events of relevance for the Aging2.0 community – ie events that would be interesting for i) innovators who are looking to get into the  aging space or ii) people working in aging who’d like to get more innovative. 

You can use this form to submit suggestions for events you’d like added to the list. 

Also, a shout out to 3 events coming up that you should be aware of: 

Health2.0 Chicago 

This is the first meeting in Chicago of the excellent Health2.0 team that is increasingly bringing innovation in healthcare around the world through its events and network. Chicago organizers Subbu and Jasmin are great, and on it. They helped us out with organizing our first Aging2.0 meeting in Chicago earlier this Summer, so we’re returning the favor – with pleasure. The speakers, sponsors, format and lineup they’ve put together looks very substantive (including long-time Aging2.0 supporters InnovateLTC) and they’ve kindly agreed to give Aging2.0 readers 20% off the ticket price, using the code CH20Aging.

(Also, while on the subject, the main Health2.0 event in San Francisco on Oct 7-10 is also well worth getting to if you can; it’s effectively ground zero for health innovators. If they give us a discount code for that, we’ll pass it on too.) 

ASCP Annual Meeting

The ASCP is an organization that has 6,000+ members who are consultant pharmacists – focused on geriatric medication management. As such they’re one of the gatekeepers between pharmacists and the seniors themselves, so if you’ve got an interest in medication management, this – their annual event – is one you should seriously think about attending. We’ve been asked by the ASCP to help find some great startups who’d be interesting for their members, so if you’re interested, drop us a line at info@aging2.com, and together with the ASCP, we may be able to give you preferential access to this important group. 

mHealth Summit

In terms of industry events of relevance to the Aging2.0 audience, this is the BIG one in every sense. There will be in the order of 5,000 people there from the mobile and health (and new mHealth) industries and it will be the must-stop event before the holiday hiatus. 

We’re pleased to announce that we’re going to be strategic affiliates with the mHealth Summit this year, which effectively means that because we support it and what they do, we’re going to be there in spades, and will be urging you, dear readers, to get there too. They’ve given us a discount code for $50 off the ticket price for Full Access Registration – just enter the code A2.0-12. 

Here’s a quick recap of the event, provided by them: 

The largest event of its kind, the 4th annual mHealth Summit brings together leaders in government, the private sector, industry, academia, providers and not-for-profit organizations from across the mHealth ecosystem to advance collaboration in the use of wireless technology to improve health outcomes in the United States and abroad.

Lots to keep you occupied, and more to come.
