Held at the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill with more participants and a record number of congressional staffers in attendance, the event highlighted the best of academia, industry and patient-focused research in a forum that educated our nation’s leadership about new technologies being introduced and how they affect patient outcomes.
