Call for Abstracts - Poster Session at the 2019 PCHAlliance Connected Health Conference

Do you have connected health or mHealth research results to share with an international audience of thought leaders in health and technology?

Here is your opportunity to present a poster at the 2019 Connected Health Conference (CHC19), October 16-18, 2019, at the Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, Massachusetts.

This year's theme, Designing for Healthy Habits and Better Outcomes, focuses on the devices, data and market demand that will support a major shift in human health through connected health technologies. Abstracts for the Poster Session—co-hosted by the Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHAlliance), a HIMSS Innovation Company, Partners Connected Health, Partners HealthCare Pivot Labs, and JMIR Publications—will be accepted until 5 PM EDT on June 27, 2019. Abstracts will be selected by a peer-review process led by Partners Pivot Labs.
