Research!America’s National Health Research Forum sparks stimulating conversations among top leaders in government, industry, patient advocacy and academia about “in the moment” issues that could impact the trajectory of medical and health research and public health. Thought leaders will come together for candid discussions on efforts to find solutions to pressing health challenges.
The forum is the only event of its kind that convenes the directors of federal agencies and other leaders within the research and innovation ecosystem in a setting where a distinguished audience may hear from, ask questions of and interact with those who are advancing medical discovery and public health. The 2018 National Health Research Forum will include a reserved luncheon where sponsors are seated with agency heads, panelists, and Research!America Board Members. Each panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.
