The iRescU project was one of 39 technology projects accepted for presentation at the 2010 mHealth Summit on November 8-10 in Washington, D.C. Keynote speakers at the Summit included Ted Turner and Bill Gates. The iRescU Team joined other innovators, including the National Institutes of Health, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Purdue University in giving technology demonstrations at the Summit.
