We don’t toot our own horn so often at Savor Health, but we’re so excited about this one we can’t keep quiet!
We’ve been selected as one of ten finalists for AARP’s Health Innovation@50+ LivePitch event in Sunnyvale, California. This is a whole conference devoted to emerging technology solutions for people 50 and over, as well as their caregivers.
It’s a huge honor to be selected from over 200 promising tech startups. This is a huge step closer to realizing our vision of a nutrition concierge app to make personalized oncology nutrition support accessible to every cancer patient.
The other finalists are:

- UnaliWear, Austin, TX, has its Kanega Watch that allows discreet support for falls, medication reminders and a guard against wandering in a classically-styled watch with an easy-to-use speech interface rather than buttons. Kanega Watch works wherever you are, 24×7, and doesn’t require a smart phone (because it’s built in). UnaliWear’s artificial intelligence learns the wearer’s lifestyle to provide predictive, pre-emptive support. @UnaliWear
- Well Beyond Care, Austin, TX, is the only company that teaches families and individuals how to find and manage affordable non-medical in-home care, while solving the chronic problems of caregiver truancy and turnover, and at the same time offering a pathway to transitional care to help HHAs accomplish their Clinical Outcomes and Customer Service goals. @WellBeyondCare
AARP is a champion for people 50+ and the people who care about them, so it’s incredibly rewarding to be recognized by them.
I wish we could send you all to Sunnyvale to watch us, but I’ll be sharing the highlights on Twitter. You can learn more about 2016 Health Innovation@50+ on their website or read the AARP press release.
