WATCH Society - an independent, International Society for and by Medical Professionals is hosting its fourth Conference in Stanford University, Stanford Silicon Valley

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Connecting with anyone, even beyond geographical borders, is now an everyday reality. This couldn’t be truer than in the context of wearable devices that make it possible for physicians and patients anywhere to share real-time wireless health data to improve the level of care. And so it is our pleasure to invite you to participate at our 4th International Conference of Wearable Technology in Healthcare (WATCH) Society organized in collaboration with Stanford University School of Medicine.

This two-day conference will take place from June 23-24 2016; starting at the Li Ka Shing Center of Stanford University Medical School. At the end of the day we will be honored to have a Medicine X Teaser, specially prepared and led by the one and only Dr. Larry Chu.
On June 24, attendants have the option of taking featured tours to several landmark locations in Silicon Valley including Google, Facebook, Stanford, etc.

The WATCH Conference is a premier International platform for wearables in healthcare and provides a broad range of education and networking opportunities for clinicians, patients, entrepreneurs, computer scientists, academicians and industry stakeholders. Cutting-edge research, hands-on learning opportunities, timely discourse on the most relevant topics, and unparalleled peer access remain hallmarks of the conference. Stanford University is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, where most of the world’s innovation is created.

On behalf of Stanford University and the WATCH Society, we look forward to welcoming you to the heart of Silicon Valley, and to encourage you to interact with fellow enthusiasts on Wearable Technology in Healthcare!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I consider Sponsoring the Society?

    Wearable Technology is an industry that grows exponentially, adapt to meet the ever-changing needs of healthcare. Wearable health-related technologies are elegant and may provide a variety of solutions for clinical use and patient-related issues. Moreover, generated data allow for easy interpretation of feedback, resulting from use. A number of innovative wearable technologies have emerged that aim to revolutionize the healthcare industry. But without proper validation and co-creation with healthcare professionals and patients, promising technology may fail to gain support and lembedding. In fact, new technology is often 'hype-sensitive'. Without academic scrutinization and search for proper use; support, energy, money and enthusiasm for promising tech may wear off before time. The WATCH Society is an independent Society with a Board and Advisory Board of medical specialists and professionals, all frontrunners in use and/or development of wearable technology. WATCH envisions co-creation, collaboration and scrutinization in order to help healthcare from multiple professional viewpoints. We welcome your support and are pleased to offer three types of sponsorships.
