Health 2.0 Northwest Chapter Kicks-off with a Big Bang

Picture 35
The Health 2.0 Northwest Chapter is having its first meeting next week, and it’s a doozie. No starting off with a few drinks in a bar for these guys, they’ve got a serious host (the major Health Science University) and serious panelists. Congrats to Frank Ille at HealthSaaS and his crew for pulling this off, and kudos to our own (and Eugene, OR resident) Lizzie Dunklee for being on this high-powered panel. If you’re in Portland, you don't want to miss it  

Date: Wednesday August 18 2010
Location: OHSU Old Library Auditorium
Time: Networking and snacks 5:00-6:00pm followed by Panel discussion 6:00-8:00pm
