Straight Talk: New Thinking on Tough Challenges

Register for the 2016 National Health Research Forum, Thursday, September 8.

 

Research!America’s National Health Research Forum is designed to take an unvarnished look at issues that are sometimes controversial, undeniably complex, and always important to the wellbeing of our nation, our economy, and most importantly, patients. Is medical progress living up to the expectations of Americans? Are we aiming high enough to find solutions?  What are the obstacles? Given the uncertainties around this election season and the transition ahead, it is especially important to stay focused and stay aligned when making the case for science and for medical progress.

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 2016 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.
