TA brought together members of the consumer
technology, medical and regulatory communities at
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
for a day-long Digital Health Technology Expo on
September 26, to explore the future of technology in healthcare. About 450 FDA employees, CTA Health & Fitness Tech
members and invited guests attended
the panels and exhibits, including FDA
Commissioner Robert Califf.
In addition, 16 CTA member
companies demonstrated their healthrelated technologies for FDA staff
including Adidas, Fitbit, Qualcomm
Life, Samsung, Sony, Under Armour,
Validic and Valencell. CTA President
and CEO Gary Shapiro gave the keynote
address and Associate Director of Digital
Health, FDA's Center for Devices and
Radiological Health Bakul Patel gave
opening remarks.
"Events such as CTA's Digital Health
Technology Expo allow the public
and private sectors to share critical
information about health and fitness
technology that empowers consumers,
reduces costs and improves outcomes
to change our lives for the better," said
Shapiro. "The FDA's recent work has

helped create an environment that
fosters tech innovations in healthcare.
We are pleased to partner with the
agency, so these stakeholders can have
the meaningful discussions we need to
ensure technology continues to advance
the healthcare sector."
The event included presentations

Department of Health and Human
Services, as well as government, academic and industry market leaders on

healthcare. Innovations in biometric
wearables for healthcare data delivery;

by enabling patients and caregivers
to drive positive behavior change and
reduce health risks, was discussed.

conference on vehicle technology in Washington, D.C. on
September 30. The event was
keynoted by Greg Nadeau,

Highway Administration, and
Gary Shapiro, President and
CEO, CTA. In his remarks, Shapiro

perspective on the future of
self-driving vehicles, noting the
potential to save thousands of
lives a year and highlighting the
need for presidential leadership
and a public-private partnership
to lead the effort to get selfdriving vehicles on the road.
The keynotes were followed
by panels on the regulatory
and policy outlook for
self-driving vehicles
and issues facing
companies and
stakeholders.
