m-health NZ conference: Deadline reminders

A reminder that the Early Bird Registration expires on 31st August

The Abstract Submission deadline has been extended to Friday 4th September, 5.00 pm

The Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) and the National Institute for Health Innovation (NIHI) will be hosting a one-day conference on the use of mobile technology to improve health. The conference will be held at the School of Population Health, Tamaki University Campus on November 6th 2009. Organisers, Dr Robyn Whittaker and Dr Chris Paton, are hoping the conference will bring together those working in research, health services and industry, to potentially stimulate new collaborations. Many ground-breaking services and products are being developed here in NZ but there are few opportunities for those working in this area to share their experiences and knowledge.

Visit the website at www.m-healthconference.org.nz for more details and instructions on submitting abstracts or sponsoring the conference.
