Musical Health Technologies co-founders and sister-brother duo, Rachel Francine (CEO) and Andy Tubman (Chief Clinical Officer) had quite a time at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2023. Having attended the conference in their late teens on “vacation” with their inventor father, this was not the first CES for the duo or for SingFit, though this time certainly had many highlights!

On Tour with the Consumer Technology Association Foundation
Rachel and Andy were honored to speak with other members of The Consumer Technology Association Foundation, the not-for-profit arm of the Consumer Technology Association, during their tour of the CES floor. The CTA Foundation works to bring “technology to those most in need — seniors and people with disabilities”. The tour, curated and led by CTA Executive Director, Steve Ewell gave the SingFit staff the ability to demonstrate and talk about music as medicine with other organizations interested in ensuring technology and its benefits are as inclusive as possible.
After CES, Rachel traveled to the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference to continue the conversation about music as medicine. To read about that experience, click here.
