IABtalks Networking Events
The Department of Biomedical Informatics Industry Advisory Board (IAB) at the University of Utah hosted another great event on Thursday, October 29, 2020. We went virtual for the first time and this allowed for many more people to attend that would not have been able to if it was an in-person event.
This continues to be a successful event, with students attending from across the state and many students with biomedical informatics and computer science backgrounds. This event also draws many professionals in industry and government who look forward to networking with others in the biomedical informatics field.
October's keynote speaker was Maia Hightower, MD, MPH, MBA. She is the Chief Medical Information Officer for the University of Utah Health. Her topic for the evening was “Capacity Building for Biomedical Informatics & Data Science in the New Decade.” (See her presentation along with the panel discussion HERE).
We kicked off the evening with a panel discussion highlighting the student experience from several of Utah’s biomedical informatics programs. After Dr. Hightower’s keynote address, attendees joined different virtual exhibit booths hosted by our IAB companies/organizations where attendees learned more about our valued partners.
We look forward to our next IABtalks on Tuesday, April 20th. Hope to see you all there!
