Special Rate Ends Today For Our Nov. 17 Health Summit: Save $100

Xconomy Boston — 

If you want you keep your weight down, you eat right and exercise—the formula is pretty simple. If you want to understand what is going on in healthcare across science, medicine, payments, and policy—and use science to optimize your chance at a long, healthy life—it gets a bit trickier.

You can get a leg up on that trickier part of health at Xconomy’s upcoming Healthcare Summit 2015. Our third annual Boston-area health summit will take place on November 17 at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, in the center of Kendall Square.

And if you want your wallet to stay as healthy as possible, get your tickets fast—our Procrastinator’s Special ends today, Nov. 3. By grabbing your ticket now, you can save $100 off the regular price.

It will be well worth it. Leading experts and innovators from around the country are descending on the Broad for the summit.

You can see the whole lineup here, but one speaker will be Lynda Chin, the physician-scientist who serves as chief innovation officer for health affairs for the University of Texas system. She will be speaking on Transforming Medicine. Another is Dartmouth scientist and serial entrepreneur Tillman Gerngross (Adimab, Glycofi, and more), who will be teaming up with investor Terry McGuire, the Polaris Partners co-founder, for a chat about relationship and integrity in building companies. Katrine Bosley, CEO of Editas Medicine, will join Sheila Dodge of the Broad Institute in a unique session about the future of gene editing and genomics. After separate spotlight talks, the two will take the stage together for audience Q&A.

Beyond these stars, come a constellation of others. Also on hand will be MIT biologist Leonard Guarente, an acclaimed researcher on health and aging. We’ll have sessions on Data and Diagnostics and Health IT for Consumers, and a panel called New Models of Collaboration that features leaders from Boston Children’s Hospital, the Yale Center for Biomedical and Interventional Technology, and Johnson and Johnson.

Closing out the day will be a special session with IBM Watson Health.

If this sounds good to you, act fast to save $100 on your ticket—again the Procrastinator’s Special ends today, Nov. 3.
