MIT Sloan Healthcare and BioInnovations Conference (SHBC) brings together industry, academic and policy leaders to discuss the most pressing issues and exciting innovations in the healthcare sector. From cutting edge targeted biotechnologies to telehealth and healthcare IT, we will engage in discussion with industry leaders who are driving towards targeted and effective care for all.   

This year's theme is Emerging Trends in Healthcare: Personalized & Digital Health and will feature a line up of speakers including keynotes from Dr. Betsy Nabel, President of Brigham Health and Larry Renfro, CEO of Optum and Vice Chairman of UnitedHealth Group.

SHBC is also an excellent opportunity for networking. Over 100 healthcare companies were represented last year. This year we will also be partnering with MIT Hacking Medicine for our Design Thinking Workshop!
