Rock Weekly: The Wanamaker Problem for Healthcare
While we were all a bit resentful of Shark Week‘s requisite time in the spotlight, this week, digital health is stealing the show. Bostonians can join us at the Broad Institute for our first ever Rock Boston Demo Day, when we highlight our latest batch of healthcare superstars. You’ll meet our outstanding teams as well as few very special guests.
And if you’ve been vacationing in outer space, our Health Innovation Summit is next Monday and Tuesday in San Francisco. We’ve compiled the top 5 reasons to attend for all you fencesitters.
