Healthy Aging Challenge Final Pitch Event

On June 28th, eight digital health companies that are addressing the health of older adults will pitch for the chance to win one of four $50,000 awards which allow them to test their solutions with one of the cutting-edge R&D centers in the Massachusetts Digital Health Sandbox Network. This event will bring together startups, accelerators, investors, researchers, and other key stakeholders to network in person and showcase the strength and opportunities of the Massachusetts Digital Health Ecosystem. The event will also feature a demo of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology AgeLab’s AGNES suit, 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.
