Please note: Digital Health Summer Summit does not do a formal call for speakers or topics. We create our content internally by working closely with individuals and companies, scouring all of the latest information and using our creative noggins.

With that said, there is no “set in stone” way we select our speakers. They come from a variety of conversations and meetings, sponsor companies, research and more research–but we are always interested in building new relationships to bring the best and brightest to DHSS.

Our top priority is stellar content…period.
