Research!America’s National Forum provides an ideal setting for top leaders in government, industry, patient advocacy, academia and the media to discuss key medical and health research issues as they bear on U.S. medical innovation and the public health. Moderated by high profile journalists, the Forum is the only event of its kind that convenes the directors of relevant federal agencies and other leaders within the research ecosystem in a setting where a distinguished audience may hear from, ask questions of and interact with those who are helping advance public health and shape the future of medical progress.
The 2015 National Health Research Forum will start with a reserved seating luncheon where sponsors are seated with agency heads, panelists and Research!America Board Members. During lunch will be panel discussions, each followed by a Q&A session.
The audience is comprised of top leadership and senior staff in the areas of research, policy, government affairs and communications at academic medical centers, research institutions, government agencies, congressional offices, voluntary/patient advocacy groups, associations and think tanks—including many Research!America’s distinguished board of directors.
Speakers at the event will include: Stephen Ostroff, MD, acting commissioner, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kathy Hudson, PhD, deputy director for science, outreach, and policy, National Institutes of Health (NIH), Richard Kronick, PhD, director, Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research (AHRQ), and Anne Schuchat, MD, director, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), among others.
