What are participants saying about the new Healthcare SIG?
“I enjoy this new monthly meeting, the topics expose me to new branches ofdevelopment. The relaxed environment is beneficial to meeting people.”
“The HBS Healthcare SIG is a wonderful opportunity to hear about cutting edge information from leaders in the industry. The unconference format just adds to that experience, being able to discuss these and other issues of interest with fellow HBS alums and hear their insights.”
(The May 10th meeting was) a “great way to learn more about the Healthcare IT market and meet some experienced and knowledgeable colleagues.”
