Kickstart your conference experience with the SidekickHealth & AADE Wellness Challenge! As a fun feature of AADE17, we challenge all attendees to participate in a three-day health competition with prizes! SidekickHealth’s mobile platform helps you stay focused on physical activity, diet and mindfulness. Throughout the conference, you can earn points and altruistic rewards by completing short health missions for steps, hotel workouts, food, moments of relaxation and more… all on your phone! Visit the SidekickHealth & AADE Wellness Challenge booth on Thursday, and we’ll help you download the app and enter the conference code, and you’ll be ready to go. You can also swing by the SidekickHealth booth (#1332) anytime to register and complete some quick missions to earn points on the spot. The challenge runs concurrently with the exhibit hall from 9:00 am Friday through 2:00 pm Sunday. Good luck!
