2010 mHealth Summit Expecting 2,000+

Keynote speakers include Bill Gates, Ted Turner, NIH Director Francis Collins, and Dr. Julio Frenk, faculty dean of the Harvard School of Public Health.

Fittingly, Skype and Verizon are among the sponsors for the 2010 mHealth Summit, which will take place Nov. 8-10 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Keynote speakers include Bill Gates; Ted Turner, founder and chairman of the United Nations Foundation; Aneesh Chopra, the U.S. chief technology officer who works for The White House; Francis S. Collins, Ph.D., director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH); Judith Rodin, president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and Dr. Julio Frenk, faculty dean of the Harvard School of Public Health and former health minister of Mexico.

The partner organizations are the mHealth Alliance, NIH, and the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health. More than 2,000 attendees are expected, according to the event's website.

Sessions on the agenda will cover everything from infection control and health surveillance to emergency response for disasters such as the Haiti earthquake, improving access to medications, cloud computing, mobile money, how research on mobile networks and social media can prevent the public from becoming involved in risky sexual behavior, and the business and economics of mobile health.

In July 2010, NIH's National Cancer Institute reported on the growth of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Comprehensive Health Enhancement Support System (CHESS), an electronic communications and support tool to improve patients' quality of life. Several CHESS projects are under way, including a clinical trial to determine whether an asthma care management system delivered via smartphones can improve low-income teens' asthma control and reduce their asthma-related emergency or urgent care visits and hospitalizations.
