Please join us for an engaging conversation focused on the commercialization of academic research. Learn from health care innovators who took the journey from academic research to successful commercialization and founded their own company along the way. Speakers include Dr. Kathy Bowles, PhD, RN, of the University of Pennsylvania, and Eric Heil, CEO, co-founders of RightCare Solutions, a pioneering medical technology company. Heil developed Dr. Bowles’ research into software while an engineering major at the University of Pennsylvania as part of his senior project, and commercialized it as a graduate student at Wharton School of Business. NaviHealth, a subsidiary of Cardinal Health, acquired this software last year. Kevin Taylor, VP Product Management, Global Market Development at Cardinal Health, will also speak.
