Don’t be the one to miss this year’s Wisconsin Biohealth Summit on October 9th! Take advantage of this one of a kind opportunity to join 400 industry peers at the Wisconsin Biohealth Summit in Madison for a day of biohealth sessions you’ll never forget.

Here are five reasons why we think this year’s Biohealth Summit will be the most exciting one yet:

1.    Hear an entertaining morning keynote from the one-and-only Dr. Chris Mason and participate in one of his world-renowned studies

Start the day off by hearing from the innovative and high-energy researcher, Dr. Chris Mason. This UW-Madison grad is widely known for his studies done on bacterial DNA swabbed from the surfaces of New York City subway stations and for his work with NASA on the metagenome for life in space. Not only will you get to hear him speak on genomics and how this phenomenon is impacting our world today, but you’ll also have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of one of Dr. Chris Mason’s studies (don’t forget your phone!).

2.    Attend exciting breakout sessions featuring thought-provoking industry leaders and topics

Make connections and learn from thought leaders in the biohealth industry on timely topics that will keep you on the edge of your seat all day. The sound advice and inspiring stories on subjects from gene editing and its implications to executive level female leadership in the biohealth industry will give you invaluable insight into the future of the Wisconsin healthcare revolution.

3.    Get an exclusive look at BioForward’s 2018 Expansions and Economic Impact Study

At the 2018 Summit, you’ll have the unique opportunity to check out BioForward’s latest 2018 Expansions and Economic Impact study.
