Annual Stern Healthcare Association Conference

Advancing and AdaptinG

Join us for the 2017 Stern Healthcare Association Conference on October 27th, 2017. In a world where the healthcare landscape, both politically and scientifically, is constantly changing, business leaders must understand how to adapt to the current climate and advance the industry. The Healthcare Conference will address how technology, emerging R&D, new business models, and integrated access is meeting the needs of patients. The conference will highlight speakers from Boehringer Ingelheim, Synergy Pharma, and NYU, to name a few.

Last year's conference drew about 200 attendees, ranging from full-time and part-time students from several schools in the area to industry professionals. The conference showcased a wide variety of programming last year too, including an entrepreneurship panel and talks given by executives from Pfizer and IMB Watson.
