Event description

Description

Please join the Rutgers Biomedical Engineering Medical Device Development Center and the Healthcare Institute of New Jersey for the third in their Fall series of educational panels and seminars!

Scientists and engineers do amazing work creating innovative therapies and devices which are life-changing - they can save or improve the quality of lives of patients who have been injured, or who live with diseases or disabilities. However, while working in a lab or at the computer, there are few opportunities to see those who benefit from the health care made possible by medical devices and therapies. Please join us for a very important event where we will hear from people working with patients, and from patients themselves, as they share their inspirational stories.

Networking reception starts at 4:30 pm, followed by the event at 5:30 pm, in the Biomedical Engineering Auditorium (located in the BME Building)

Speakers

Dr. Joachim Kohn, Director, Center for Biomaterials

Ms. Cynthia Shanks and Ms. Christine Mayercik, Matheny Medical and Educational Center

Ms. Jennifer Rosen, District Service Manager, Medtronic, Inc.

Mr. William Swayze
