    Brilliant meet last night organised by Colby and the team! There was some discussion surrounding the future regulation of health apps - heads up on a review paper currently in press (with BMJ by Wyatt & Curtis) evaluating app quality.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
