AARP reality check: Members tell healthcare startups which ideas are on time

July 12, 2013 1:32 pm by | 0 Comments

We invited 50 AARP members from the Philadelphia chapter to CONVERGE. They talked with the entrepreneurs in the Pfizer Startup Showcase. These consumers were our reality check on innovation. A few of the members shared their thoughts on which company resonated with them and their own health concerns.

The members also joined a town hall discussion about what they saw during the event. The tweets below show more reactions to the startups in the showcase and how relevant they were to the senior citizens.

I am the editor in chief at MedCityNews.com. I started writing and editing in the print world and joined a dotcom right before the 2000 crash. I was at TechRepublic/CNET/BNET for 7 years. Health was more interesting to me than the latest version of Windows, so I left for a startup tracking prescription drug news. A year later, MedTrackAlert was acquired by HealthCentral, so I shifted to audience research. The fun of daily news and interviewing smart people brought me to MedCity News in February 2012.
