I’m excited to be co-chair of the Medical and Drug-Delivery Devices track for the 2018 International Symposium, to be held March 26-28 in my home town, Boston! This is the most important event of the year for those of us practicing HF/UE in the healthcare field.

Consider being part of the action by submitting a proposal. We welcome individual lecture or poster submissions, as well as full session panels, debates, and interactive presentations.

Seeking submissions in 4 technical tracks:

  • Medical and Drug-Delivery Devices (my track)

This year, my co-chair and I are particularly interested in submissions on:

  • Compliance to FDA standards from industry perspective, particularly from start-ups

  • Augmented reality (AR) in the OR

  • Topics in telemetry – Case studies, challenges, lessons learned, etc.
