Event Co-Hosts

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services External Web Site Policy , is the nation’s medical research agency—making important discoveries that improve health and save lives.
Thanks in large part to NIH-funded medical research, Americans today are living longer and healthier. Life expectancy in the United States has jumped from 47 years in 1900 to 78 years as reported in 2009, and disability in people over age 65 has dropped dramatically in the past 3 decades. In recent years, nationwide rates of new diagnoses and deaths from all cancers combined have fallen significantly.
The Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance (WLSA) is a special purpose, non-profit trade organization for innovators, globally relevant companies, scientists, physicians, and policy makers.The WLSA is dedicated to creating value and improving health, globally, throught the convergence of communications technologies, consumers, caregivers, and all sectors of the life sciences and technology environment.
WLSA partners are using wireless health innovations to better manage chronic conditions, preempt disease, and improve the lives of the elderly and under-served populations around the world.
