Health and Tech

Each spring, the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (IIE) at California State University Long Beach engages the entire campus in a free technology event designed to prepare students to live and work in an increasingly technology driven world. On March 1, 2019, this year’s focus is Health and Tech--an interactive introduction to innovations in health and technology. We define health broadly to include physical and mental health. Attendees will participate in hands on exploration where they wear, touch, and fully immerse themselves in health and tech experiences including but not limited to accelerometers, and virtual reality. Other engagements include a keynote, panels, and speed informational interviews with experts and employers in the field.

Friday, March 1st from 8:30am- 7pm will feature technology demos and panel discussions.
