What is looking to be a top-flight China healthcare conference is going to be held on Saturday, March 24, at The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, in Philadelphia. The conference is the 2012 Intercollegiate US-China Healthcare Conference, an all day event offering a panel of expert speakers and panelists and opportunities for discussion and networking. The theme will be “Transforming the Face of Chinese Healthcare.”
I am writing about this conference because I know two of the panelists very well. Michael Zakkour of Technomic Asia will be on the Health Policy and Investment Panel. I have worked on a number of matters with Michael and I can vouch for his knowledge of China’s health care industry. Damjan DeNoble will be on the same panel with Michael and he will also moderate the Senior Care Delivery Panel. Damjan is one of the driving forces behind the Asia Health Care Blog, where he describes himself as follows:
Damjan co-founded Asia Healthcare Blog with James Flanagan, in 2009. He is currently a JD/MA dual-degree candidate, in Law and Chinese Studies, at The University of Michigan Law School. Last summer he clerked at the offices of Harris & Moure, a boutique international law firm widely admired for its China Law Blog. He graduated from Duke University in 2007, with a B.A. in Public Policy, concentration in health policy.
If you have an interest in China healthcare, this would seem to be the conference to attend. If you go, please report back on how it went.
