Description: Come network with us! We would like to formally invite you to the Innovation in Health Care Technology conference at Carnegie Mellon University, a student-run conference hosted by Heinz and Tepper Master’s candidates. This year’s conference will be hosted on April 5, 2013 at the CMU University Center. Our aim is to build national recognition for Carnegie Mellon and the Pittsburgh area as leaders in health care innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship.

As you may know, health care makes up approximately 18% of the US GDP and boasts the highest job creation over any industry. With our school’s rank and reputation growing, it’s imperative that our students are well-prepared for roles in our industry – health care firms have been hiring in spite of macroeconomic uncertainty – and these students are a reflection of our entire alumni population. CMU leads the world in innovative technology & research and we intend to harness this intellectual capital and “raise the flag” for health care innovation in the Pittsburgh community.

A brief agenda of the April 5th event:

• Networking Reception
• Keynote Speakers
• Poster Session
• Break-out panels
o Health Care Policy
o Biopharma
o Healthcare IT
o Entrepreneurship

We believe that this conference not only raises our profile as a school, but also strengthens our alumni network – and is critical to the ongoing success of our students. With sponsors like Boehringer Ingelheim, Merck, and Medrad, we’re well on our way to the exchange of ideas and expertise. Join us for a light-hearted, informative, and inspiring day of networking, speakers, and discussions!
