Attendees at Mobile Health 2010 learned how today’s mobile technology can improve the health of everyday people.
What was special about this event?
Mobile Health 2010 had a precise and practical focus: We highlighted how today’s mobile technology can improve the health of everyday people. The emphasis was on what’s working to change behavior, right now.
Our speakers did not waste time talking about unproven solutions that are “just around the corner.” And our speakers did not give sales pitches. (Too many events make these mistakes. We don’t.)
Mobile Health 2010 at Stanford was single-track. That meant everyone heard all the speakers. This improved the conversations during breaks and each panel Q&A. On top of that, each talk was short. This time constraint caused speakers to get to the point quickly. This was much appreciated by attendees!
With Mobile Health 2010, we built on the success of our two previous events at Stanford: Mobile Persuasion and Texting 4 Health. These were high-quality learning experiences. These events also led to new partnerships, research, and innovations.
