“Food and nutrition related issues are a critical driver of health and well being,” commented Todd Park, chief technology officer of HSS by email. “The growth of the food tech community, along with the release of new food and health data sources, can give consumers new tools to help them make more informed choices about the food they eat, and ultimately their health. Innovators can help drive change by empowering consumers through the use of new technologies, making now an incredible time to be an innovator in this space.”
This June 5, the best and bright brightest of the food tech community are being invited to showcase your work in at the third annual Health Datapalooza. Hosted by The Health Data Initiative, the event brings together over 1,000 health data stakeholders and showcases how health data can create services, tools and applications to support more informed decision-making by patients, health care systems, and community officials. Last year’s event featured talks from Aneesh Chopra, US CTO; Tim O’Reilly, O’Reilly Media; Matt Miller, NPR; and many others.
