From a surgeon peering through Google Glass to examine X-rays while simultaneously operating on a patient, to medical personnel monitoring heart rate in real-time on a smartphone from halfway around the world, science fiction is quickly becoming science fact.

Digital technology is rapidly transforming healthcare in new and exciting ways. Join HVEDC and a team of digital healthcare experts at Marist for a deep dive into the mysterious (and sometimes miraculous) world of Digital Health. Learn how these tools, technologies, and techniques are already changing the Hudson Valley economy for the better.
