HealthTech Connect, a new strategic initiative at the University of Arizona Health Sciences, held its inaugural event on Sept. 24 on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus. The hybrid in-person/virtual event brought together members of the biotechnology, health care, start-up, corporate, higher education, funding and economic development communities to advance health technology in Arizona.
“HealthTech Connect is a transformative opportunity to advance health technology in Arizona,” said Michael D. Dake, MD, senior vice president for UArizona Health Sciences. “From wearable technologies to sensors to implants, and all the analytics and informatics that support those innovations, the portfolio of health technology is growing. HealthTech Connect will create a collaborative network with the synergy and connectivity to increase the tempo of delivering these concepts and expanding access to quality health care for our citizens, which is a priority at the University of Arizona Health Sciences.”
The next HealthTech Connect meeting will take place in-person on Dec. 3 at the Biomedical Sciences Partnership Building on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus. The theme will be Innovations in Healthy Aging. For more information and to register, click here.
