Vanessa designed this event and curated speakers and participants for it, and facilitated the two day event, combining it with a Bits & Beers where winners were announced.
This two day event challenged existing health care devices, asking experts from diverse backgrounds to come together and influence each other, to create new, meaningful, and potentially groundbreaking health care devices.
Coordinated with Health 2.0, this event welcomed doctors, nurses, hardware specialists, engineers, artists, CEOs, health care providers, and entrepreneurs to work together to examine, analyze and explore existing situations and solutions and propose and build new solutions in a two day time span.
