Thank you to all of those who attended Vator Splash Health and made it great!

Vator held its annual Splash Health, Wellness & Wearables 2017 event on Thursday, and it couldn't have gone better. Not only were the panelists, and all of our presenting companies great, but so were all of our audience members, who helped us to preserved the memory of the event on Twitter forever.

Here are some highlights from our attendees on Twitter:

  • Splash Talk - The Future of Health & Medicine: Where Can Technology Take Us? 

Daniel Kraft (Faculty Chair for Medicine & Neuroscience, Singularity University; Founder & Chair, Exponential Medicine)

  • Fireside Keynote - Matching patients with doctors; What would it be like if our doctors were perfectly matched to who we are and to our needs? With the plethora of personalized data, this kind of matching making is becoming a reality. 

Owen Tripp (Co-Founder & CEO, Grand Rounds), Bambi Francisco (Founder & CEO, Vator)

  • The doctor will see you now; Advances in wearables, augmented reality, mobile and how it’s changing our interaction with our physicians.

Dr. Robert Pearl (CEO, The Permanente Medical Group, Kaiser Permanente)

  • Fireside Keynote - Staying human while becoming immortal; A baby born today can expect to live twice as long as one born in the 19th century. We’ve come a long way. But will building the biggest database of genotypes and phenotypes to understand age-related diseases help us to live longer? When will we become the ageless generation and what are the economic and social implications? 

Steve Jurvetson (Partner, DFJ) and J. Craig Venter, PhD (Co–Founder and Executive Chairman, Human Longevity, Inc)

  • Splash Talk - Building out the artificial pancreas to treat diabetes; Diabetes affects 371 million in the world. It’s one of the top 10 leading causes of death in the US. In 2016, the FDA approved the first artificial pancreas. Are we finally making significant strides? 

Jeffrey Brewer (Founder & CEO, Bigfoot Biomedical)

  • Preventative, human-centered care and promoting a healthy lifestyle; There is a positive economic impact that comes from improved healthy living and behaviors. How is artificial intelligence, deep learning and mobile helping us to reduce overall healthcare costs and extend our lives?
