We’re pleased to announce the launch of MedTechIDEAS, a series of conferences aimed at presenting a “Big Idea” from top innovators in the bio/med industry.  Our inaugural event will feature Aimee Corso, and others from Amazon’s Global Healthcare Team, to discuss “Amazon and Innovation in the Healthcare Supply Chain.”

The day will also include an educational program with an exciting panel of guests who will discuss their successes (and failures) in scaling the challenges of the connected economy.

Please plan to join us at the inaugural summit on Thursday, May 31 at the Lodge at Welch Allyn in Skaneateles Falls, NY.
