BIOHEALTH TRANSFORMED

How Technology & Creativity Are Advancing the Industry

BioForward’s annual Biohealth Summit serves as Wisconsin’s platform to highlight our diverse biohealth community, collaborate on new challenges and opportunities, and forge our path to continued leadership and growth. Last year we had over 500 attendees, representing 250+ industry-leading organizations, organized a once-in-a-lifetime interactive genome experiment, strengthened our Women in BioHealth and talent initiatives, and welcomed two keynotes from the technology industry that highlighted the shift in healthcare innovation. We’re in the works of planning another exciting event to connect biohealth companies statewide. Watch this page for keynote speakers, panel discussions, and fireside chats still to be announced. We can’t wait to see you at this year’s event.

  • A full-day event built with our attendees in mind, including dedicated networking time, business development opportunities, industry career fair, and insight into biohealth innovations
