Wake to Host Inaugural Healthcare Conference

business.wfu The Healthcare Club, in collaboration with the Wake Graduate Women in Business club, is sponsoring the first annual Wake Forest Schools of Business Healthcare Conference and Case Competition. The event is scheduled to for March 19-20.

The primary goal of the event is to provide students with opportunities to learn about the changing healthcare landscape through panel sessions, keynote speakers, and a case competition.

Speakers for the second day of the conference include Tony Atala of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine and Tim Bertram, senior vice president at Tengion.

This year’s case competition sponsor is Keranetics, a local healthcare firm specializing in developing and commercializing keratin-based products for use in areas of regenerative medicine and trauma use. We are currently seeking out students from the Wake Forest Schools of Business who are interested in participating in the case competition. Each team must have 3-4 members. If selected as the final winner they will receive a $5,000 cash prize. If you are interested in participating, please either contact Peppi Browne-Armstrong at or visit the conference website to submit your team information.

Additionally, we will be sending out an email soon after Spring Break to recruit volunteers to help with specific tasks throughout the weekend. If you are interested in volunteering for the event (which can be a great resume builder), please email Peppi to let her know of your availability. We are very excited that this is the INAUGURAL YEAR for the healthcare conference/case competition and look forward to a successful and engaging weekend!
