Health convergence requires not only interdisciplinary research across multiple scales in the biological hierarchy from molecular, cell, organ to system; but also the integration of science, engineering, technology and medicine with the ultimate goal of translation to practical use for human health. This talk will focus on the convergence aspects of wearable/flexible 'MINDS' sensing and multi-modal imaging for the early prevention of acute cardiovascular diseases. Using the atherosclerotic plaque assessment and wearable unobtrusive BP estimation as application examples, this talk will attempt to illustrate that the health convergence approaches should allow the practice of 8-Ps medicine that is precise, pervasive, predictive, preventive, personalized, participatory, preemptive, and patientcentralized.
