Healthy Aging Challenge Final Pitch Event

Please join the Massachusetts eHealth Institute for the Healthy Aging Sandbox Challenge Final Pitch Event. Eight digital health companies that are addressing the health of older adults through their solutions will pitch for the chance to win one of four $50,000 grants to work with one of the cutting edge R&D centers in the Massachusetts Digital Health Sandbox Network.

This event is an opportunity to bring together startups, accelerators, investors, researchers, and other key stakeholders to connect in person and showcase the strength and opportunity of the Commonwealth’s digital health network.

The event will include a demo of MIT AgeLab's AGNES, an empathy and research tool designed to simulate for the wearer what it feels like to live as an older adult with chronic health conditions. A panel discussion will also take place on "The State of Innovation in Aging" including panelists Deepak Ganesan, Center Director for MassAITCAndy Miller, SVP for Innovation & Product Development at AARP, and Steve Walsh, President and CEO of the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association, as well as moderator Danielle Duplin, Cofounder and Global Executive Director for Agetech Innovation at AGENCY@CIC.
