SXSW MedTech

South By Southwest (SXSW) is one of the hippest, multifaceted events of the year. This celebration takes over Austin, Texas each spring, and spotlights the latest in entertainment and technology. And next year, the organizers are adding a Health Tech component in the form of the SX Health and MedTech Expo. Plans call for more than 60 participating companies to exhibit the latest in technology for health and medical applications.

The program will also include more than 40 sessions on related topics. These will cover everything from the role of Big Data in healthcare and personalized medicine to using 3D printing to create replacement tissues. There is even a session scheduled to discuss progress towards a “bionic pancreas” that could help solve the diabetes epidemic worldwide.

The event will run March 13 through 17, 2015, at the JW Marriott hotel in Austin. So now you can get your fill of the latest indie rock at the same time as you learn about innovation and advances in Health Tech as well.
