THE WOMEN OF PRECISION MEDICINE

The Women of Precision Medicine – #girlpower

As you may be aware, over the past year the conference industry has come under fire for failing to have equal representation of women at their events. Life science conferences in particular have been at the center of the debate. Personally, I feel we’re missing the point. We should be highlighting the successes of women who are making waves in these traditionally male-dominated industries at events.

Download The Women in Precision Medicine Interview eBook >> To start, I sent our female speakers – the TOP experts in the industry – 3 questions: Pharmaceuticals and healthcare are entering a new paradigm with precision medicine.
