Xconomy Boston — 

It was a beautiful, brisk fall day last Tuesday at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA. Xconomy took over the entire museum for the day for our second, invitation-only Healthcare Summit. The day featured a series of chats and interactive panels with leaders from around the country in everything from genomics to new models of patient engagement and the latest wearables to track your baby and yourself.

We also had lots of networking time, accentuated by great food and drink, including a remarkable Fall Crush bourbon drink…but I digress.

Above are photos from the sessions. The day kicked off with a chat with genomics visionary George Church from Harvard. The chat was moderated by Michael Greeley of Foundation Medical Partners, who called Church “a national treasure.” And that kind of set the tone.

Great thanks to our Platinum sponsor MD Anderson Cancer Center; our Gold sponsors Johnson & Johnson Innovation and GE’s healthymagination; and Silver sponsors Coté Orphan, Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency, and Pure Communications.

Our next Boston event, The Tech Agenda 2015, takes place on Dec. 2 at the Fidelity Center for Applied Technology in downtown Boston. It promises to be a rollicking good time. Find out more and get your tickets here. There’s still time to take advantage of the pre-Thanksgiving special.

Thanks as well to our speakers and attendees, and to KeithSpiroPhoto, courtesy of Kendall Press, for all the pictures.

Happy Thanksgiving!
