We don't usually connect hacks, makers, apps, and startups with nursing, yet entrepreneurial innovations by and for nurses are changing patient care. Although medicine has experienced remarkable technological advances in recent years, patients face rising costs and feel evermore alienated from caregivers. Join us for a conversation with innovative problem solvers who are working to bridge the gaps in healthcare.
• Tiffany Kelley, founder, Nightingale Apps
• Anna Young, co-founder and CEO, MakerHealth
• Moderator: Susannah Fox, former Chief Technology Officer, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
After the program, guests will have the opportunity to talk with the panelists during a light reception and to visit our Spark!Lab hands-on invention center.
