Event Details

The Future of Hispanics & Healthcare


1) This National Hispanic Life Sciences Society (NHLSS) symposium designed to connect leading biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and healthcare executives, entrepreneurs, policymakers, researchers, scientists, technologists, academics, and service providers. It will create a collaborative setting for Hispanic life science executives and entrepreneurs to engage in discussion and exchange ideas regarding career development, building businesses, and serving the community. Participants will gain valuable contacts, connections, knowledge, information, and insights. The vision is to become the world’s preeminent annual conference focused specifically on mutually beneficial collaborations between the life sciences industry and the Hispanic/Latino community in the U.S. and globally.


2)  The National Hispanic Life Sciences Society is the world’s leading advocate, voice and core connector for Hispanic-Americans and Latinos in the global life sciences industry, including the bio medical, biotechnology, medical device, information technology, nanotechnology, and pharmaceutical sectors.


3) We are proud to have two extraordinarily distinguished organizations partnering with NHLSS on this special event: (i) the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA), which for over 40 years has been the national voice and principal advocate for the now over 100,000 Hispanic attorneys, judges, law professors, legal assistants, and law students in the U.S. and its territories and (ii) the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA), which for over 25 years has fostered Hispanic leadership through graduate management education and professional development, preparing Hispanics for leadership positions throughout the U.S.


4) Our event is inclusive, so all are welcome to attend.
