Wireless Health 2010 is the first in an annual single-track conference series convening the vanguard international research communities in Wireless Health technology and medical research with the rapidly expanding Wireless Health product and service industry, government leadership and policy makers. This conference is established to provide the highest profile academic and industrial research forum for the new field of Wireless Health. The mission of the Wireless Health 2010 organization is to include and promote an international community that will accelerate the development and adoption of this new vision for healthcare. At the same time, it is intended to create the academic research forum that enables students and faculty with the highest profile and greatest impact opportunities for publications and promotion of progress.

Wireless Health 2010 – sponsored by the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance in cooperation with ACM SIGMOBILE – will provide a critical networking opportunity that links each of the Wireless Health communities and organizations for the first time in one forum. It also provides a valuable and timely education event that informs each of the communities about opportunities that occur in this new field combining healthcare, medical research, wireless technology, information technology, and a broad set of new products and services.
