Event: HINJ and Rutgers Biomedical Engineering Medical Device Development Center to Host ‘Patient Perspectives’ in Research on November 16; Third in Forum Series
New Brunswick, NJ, November 8, 2017 — Please join the Rutgers Biomedical Engineering Medical Device Development Center and the HealthCare Institute of New Jersey (HINJ) on Thursday, November 16 for “The Patient’s Perspective: Emotional and Physical Benefits of Medical Devices,” the third in the Rutgers-HINJ Fall 2017 series of educational panels and seminars that focus on the medical device industry.
The event will be held from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. (networking at 4:30 p.m.; program at 5:30 p.m.) at Rutgers University BME Auditorium (Busch Campus), 599 Taylor Road, Piscataway.
Scientists and engineers do amazing work creating innovative therapies and devices that enhance and save lives. However, while working in a lab, there are few opportunities to see patients who benefit from the health care made possible by medical innovation.
Attendees will hear from people working with patients as well as patients themselves, as they share their inspirational stories.
Speakers will be:
- Joachim Kohn, Director, Center for Biomaterials
- Cynthia Shanks and Ms. Christine Mayercik, Matheny Medical and Educational Center
- Jennifer Rosen, District Service Manager, Medtronic, Inc.
- William Swayze
