So, that went by real fast…November is yesterday’s news and we’re welcoming December, and all it entails, with open arms. But before we start a new month, let’s recap what we’ve been up to this month:
Medtep attends Exponential Medicine
This month we had the privilege of attending the Exponential Medicine Conference, and travel to San Diego.
It was an intense 4-day cross-disciplinary program hosted by Singularity University where leading innovators showcased game changing technologies in healthcare.
What will these technologies mean to the future of medicine & healthcare? When will we be 3D printing our own personalized organ replacements?
Key questions in digital health were addressed during the event, filled to the brim with world-class faculty speakers, demos, and in-depth discussions, and the Innovation Lab we attended as part of the program.
It was great to be surrounded by relevant people in the sector and make contacts. It’s been a reboot for the way to think about healthcare challenges and a great opportunity to make a difference in the healthcare world.
Thanks for inviting us #xmed !

Coming Soon: Obesity Care Plan in Partnership with IFA Celtics
Yes, here’s something we’ve been working on this month: a partnership with the Mexican pharmaceutical company IFA Celtics, whose mission is improving patient’s health by bettering their quality of life. Hey, just like ours!
For this partnership we will be developing a care plan to help people with obesity improve their daily lifestyle.
Here’s a fact: Did you know obesity affects 300 million people around the globe? It’s a multifactorial illness and is caused mainly by a high-calorie diet, reducing physical activity and a sedentary lifestyle.
Good things will come from this partnership!
