Agenda Live for Xconomy Healthcare Summit Oct. 15–Get Your Invite

9/26/13Follow @bbuderi

Quick question: What is so important to Americans that the U.S. Congress is willing to shut the government down over it?

The answer (as if you didn’t know already): healthcare.

Here at Xconomy, we have long been tired of the political spin doctoring that surrounds healthcare. So we set out to convene a very exclusive, invitation-only summit to focus on this crucial subject and get answers from an array of real doctors, innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, insurers, and others who actually know what they are talking about.

Called From Precision Medicine to Precision Management, our summit will take place in a bit less than three weeks, on Tuesday, Oct. 15. The agenda for the day, now available here, features a star-studded speaker lineup running the gamut from Nobel Laureate Phil Sharp on the science end to FitnessKeeper Founder Jason Jacobs and his apps on the consumer side. It includes leading investors like Mark Levin of Third Rock Ventures and Juan Enriquez of Excel Medical Ventures; economics expert Bill Sahlman of Harvard Business School; local leaders like Joe Kvedar from Partners Healthcare and Dennis Ausiello from Massachusetts General Hospital—and a group of out of town experts including David Callender, president of the University of Texas Medical Branch, SeeChange Health CEO Martin Watson and Healthbox director Jill Seidman.

There are so many great speakers, with topics ranging from big data to population medicine to mobile health to new patient-doctor relationships, it is best to just check out the agenda. We only have a limited number of spaces available at this point, but we’d like to encourage entrepreneurs, technologists, executives, and investors to request an invitation.

We can promise you a day of deep insight in a spectacular setting, as we have rented out the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA, for this event. Even the reception the night before is in a cool spot: Johnson & Johnson’s new Innovation Center in Kendall square.

We hope you can make it—so, again, request that invitation. And if you are not in one of the categories above, please ask us about sponsorship packages.

We hope to see you on October 15.
