World Medical Innovation Forum: Cardiovascular and Cardiometabolic

Start/End Date: 
Monday, May 1, 2017 - 8:00am to Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - 12:45pm

The World Medical Innovation Forum is a global gathering of more than 1,000 senior health care leaders in the heart of Boston. It was established to respond to the intensifying transformation of health care and its impact on innovation. The Forum is rooted in the belief that no matter the magnitude of that change, the center of health care needs to be a shared, fundamental commitment to collaborative innovation – industry and academia working together to improve patient lives.

The 2017 World Medical Innovation Forum will feature the newest technologies to diagnose, treat and manage cardiovascular and cardiometabolic disease.  World Forum keynoters will include the CEOs of Eli Lilly, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, Edwards Life Sciences, Bard, Abiomed, Boehringer Ingelheim, American Heart Association, GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare and others, including, dozens of top investors and entrepreneurs and a large number of our Harvard faculty. Moderators have included top journalists from Bloomberg, CBS, CNBC, CNN, Fox and STAT among others. They will be joined by senior health care leaders from the biotech, pharma, and investment communities, and clinicians and investigators from across our hospitals. In addition to examining the cutting-edge issues in the field, the Forum will feature presentations from emerging investigators called First Look, the Discovery Cafés, and the “Disruptive Dozen”—12 emerging technologies with the potential to revolutionize the selected field over the next decade.
