Brisbane, Australia, 4 October 2019 — ResApp Health Limited (ASX:RAP), a leading digital health company developing smartphone applications for the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease, is pleased to announce that it has been selected to join the Startup Creasphere Digital Health Program in Munich.

“We are very excited to participate in the Startup Creasphere program to build and pilot a consumer health-focused product using our novel respiratory diagnostic algorithms,” said Tony Keating, CEO and Managing Director of ResApp. “Collaborating with the consumer healthcare business unit of Sanofi during the program provides ResApp with an outstanding opportunity to explore the direct-to-consumer market alongside global industry leaders.”
