Rock Weekly: Funding bonanza, Health Data Month, & More

September 24, 2012

This week has been totally cray. In the middle of the digital health funding bonanza, we’re swimming in awesome apps, and have tons of exciting events approaching.

And October is Health Data Month! We’re kicking it off with Living Well Through Data on October 2nd in NYC, where health data geeks will unite to discuss how we can pull a signal out of all the data noise out there. Join George Church, John Wilbanks, Eric Schadt and our friends at Mt. Sinai for a deep dive into data.
