Health Technology

Health technology is one of the truly global technologies, with advances potentially impacting every person in the world.  Whether curing disease, helping people live full lives with their health conditions, or increasing people’s quality of life, few technology areas have had (and will continue to have) such a great potential for impacting the world.
