Penn - Wharton Health and Wellness Meetup

Hope you are having a great summer!  I just moved back to NYC after two years of business school in Philly.  Met up with my classmate Michael Tedori (WG '15) and we thought it would be a great idea to get everyone interested in the health/wellness tech together in NYC.  We did a Philly meet up within the Penn community in May, had a great turnout, and would love to extend this lovely community to health & wellness tech industry professionals in NYC.  The purpose of the Meetup is to get a sense of what other people are up to, share ideas professionally and informally, and serve as a way to stay connected in the future.   


Feel free to invite other NYC friends interested in the Health/Wellness+Tech space.  Looking forward to seeing you there next week!

Please RVSP by replying directly to me ASAP pearl.hou@gmail.com

All the best,
