In each theme we'll offer insights and perspectives from experts in the field. On the final day, we'll have a live panel discussion and you'll have the opportunity to interact directly with the faculty through the live chat."

Monday's session on devices and mobile applications will explore the challenges and pitfalls of wearable devices, and the potential for wearables to prevent heart disease.
