Little Devices That Could @ AAAS


Our friend Aman at state of the art THD Blog sent us an opportunity to participate in a global health panel at the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in Boston Sunday February 17, 2008.

So for those of you based in Boston looking for a good excuse to dodge the weather on a Sunday afternoon, come by the Hynes Convention Center this Sunday and say hello.

There will be a discussion on the intersection of global health, technology, and the role of the entrepreneur. We owe the invitation to Usha Balakrishnan, CEO of Cartha, a fledging organization in the business of fostering innovative opportunities for social entrepreneurs and the next generation of thought leaders. Thanks Usha!

As additional incentive, Cat at AIDG has a great preview on all the other panels at AAAS for you to go to.

Very cool. I haven't registered for AAAS sadly. (This is essentially the only panel I thought I'd want to see). Added coincidence: I used to work for Monty Jones.

The panel discussion at AAAS was excellent. It was also one of the only sessions I attended that ran 20+ minutes over the time limit. It showed that the panelists and audience were very enthusiastic. Jose did a great job moderating. Very inspiring all around.
