Looking back on MEMOTEXT’s accomplishments this fall
This autumn has been an exciting time for MEMOTEXT. In September our Founder and President Amos Adler had the opportunity to be a main stage speaker at Stanford Medicine X 2015. Presenting the abstract: “Using Disparate Data to Personalize Digital Health Behavior Change Interventions” Amos rocked the crowd explaining the MEMOTEXT methodology. He had a fantastic time at the event and the “Cat pics + health data = behavior change” line got a substantial amount of press coverage.
Other recent highlights included our Director of Scientific Development Bills Simpson’s invitation to speak at the Canadian Psychiatric Association’s 65th Annual Conference in Vancouver, B.C. on mHealth and its capacity to affect positive behavioural change. MEMOTEXT also had the honour of being accepted into MaRS Impact8’s fall 2015 Cohort. Impact8 specializes in connecting investors with businesses with a social benefit. MEMOTEXT is also had the opportunity to present at both the Social Finance Forum 2015 and mHealth Summit 2015. And through our involvement in Impact8 Amos and Bill got the oppertunity to open the TSX (Toronto Stock Exchange)!!
MEMOTEXT has also been hard at work over the past few months with research and development and collaborating with new partners. Stay tuned to hear more about MEMOTEXT’s new adherence programs, scientific breakthroughs and future conference attendances before the New Year!
