NextMed hosts a diverse mix of change makers and troublemakers focused on unsiloing Health(care) innovation across the care, technology, and biomedical continuum. It blends physical and virtual gatherings, eye-opening content and curation tied together by an extraordinary, diverse and engaged community of mavericks, icons and rising stars most of us already earned and willing to share their scars and bruises in daily practice.
