Description

The Bay Area Chapter of SID invites you and your guest to the BA-SID Annual Dinner! Join your local display industry colleagues for a summer evening full of delicious food, great company, a beautiful location, and a moving keynote address!

Our keynote speaker is Heidi Dohse, Senior Program Manager at Google. Her story is inspiring and motivating...

From Heidi: "As a lifelong heart patient, I did not want to become a victim of heart disease. Instead, I wanted to pursue my desire to become an athlete and competitive cyclist. After having open heart surgery in 2010, doing any kind of physical activity was a frightening idea. However, with the help of wearable devices and technologies, I had the information I needed to go from the hospital bed to back on the bike and across the finish line of my first bike race..."

Come hear more about her journey as a cardiac surgery patient to wearable tech pioneer.

Speaker Bio: Heidi is a Senior Program Manager at Google, working on the Google Cloud Platform. Her expertise in wearable devices and applications is part of a personal, lifelong quest as heart patient to overcome heart disease. She has served as a product developer, technologist and consultant for leading medical device companies and has helped develop emergency services applications and software. Heidi holds an Executive Degree from Harvard Medical School, as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in art. She is also the founder of Tour de Heart, a virtual charity ride that provides hope and inspiration to heart patients and caregivers. Heidi is a Founding Steering Committee Member of the Healthy Heart Study and the Patient P.I. for the Healthy Hearts / Healthy Minds program with MGH which aims to study how physical activity affects mood, and overall cardiac health through the use of wearable sensors.

Talk Abstract: The internet of things (IoT), wearable devices, sensors and healthcare will be inextricably linked as innovations in all of these fields come to light. As the future arrives, improved sensors and wearables will make collecting personal health data more convenient and accurate, while IoT connectivity will make communication with healthcare providers quick and automated. Information security and regulatory compliance is paramount, so devices and communication channels will need to be improved and tested as new products are brought to the market. Heidi will share her personal story of how she is helping drive innovation in these spaces through sharing her own personal data every day.
