SAP Roundtable on Autism and Special Needs
- Hi Futurists,
Remember the Health Future Salon a couple of month back? Faheem Ahmed introduced Care Circles a great app to help coordinate the help for the loved ones around you.
He is on a panel of a great event again:
SAP Roundtable on Autism and Special Needs http://autism-roundtable.eventbrite.com/ happening next Tuesday Aprl 23 5:30pm at SAP labs in Palo Alot. [All details at the invite]
Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the US, affecting 1 in 88 children, up sharply from 1 in 150 just a few years ago. In honor of Autism Awareness Month, SAP is proud to host a special event on Autism and Special Needs on Tuesday April 23 on the Palo Alto campus.
The event will feature a distinguished panel of experts from leading organizations involved in autism research, fundraising, advocacy, and support. Experts from Autism Speaks, the University of California at Davis MIND Institute, the National Fragile X Foundation, and the Els for Autism Foundation will review the latest research about autism, explain how autism affects the brain, demonstrate how technology is helping affected individuals and families live with autism, and highlight how corporations across the nation are responding to the challenge.
The evening will include demos from several Silicon Valley startups applying technology to autism. SAP will also unveil Care Circles, a consumer healthcare application being used for autism research and intervention.
Free and open to the public.
I will try to be there, but can't guarantee. Will be great not to be responsible for the event and just enjoy the content, Mark.
