Health Care Innovation Day in Washington DC (HCI-DC)

On April 28, the West Wireless Health Institute (WWHI) will host its second Health Care Innovation Day in Washington DC (HCI-DC). In keeping with its mission to accelerate low cost health care solutions through innovation, HCI-DC will focus on bridging the gap between industry and government to build a thriving ecosystem that enables, not inhibits, health care innovation.

This year's event, "A Discussion with the FDA," is free of charge and will highlight recent developments and regulatory issues that remain to be tackled. Featured speakers from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) will include Jeff Shuren, MD, JD, Director of CDRH, Jonathan Sackner-Bernstein, M.D., Associate Director for Technology and Innovation, CDRH, and William Maisel, Deputy Center Director for Science and CDRH Chief Scientist.

A new panel has also just been announced, "Congressional Role in Innovation at the FDA." The panel will feature bipartisan Congressional staff discussing relevant priorities for this year, including their thoughts on issues impacting the FDA, innovation, and the wireless health sector.

To ensure engaging discussions and high quality networking opportunities, the event is limited to 300 attendees. Space is filling up fast and we will not accept onsite registration. Apply to register today at
