MedTech Conference Hot Topics

AdvaMed’s conference takes on medtech’s need to actively increase diversity and inclusion and fight racism, now.

If there is one thing we’ve learned in 2020, it is that our industry, along with others, must take a stand against racial injustice. AdvaMed’s Virtual MedTech Conference did just that, as part of its MedTech Unfiltered presentation and other conference segments, as well.

AdvaMed readily admitted that they do not have a solution for the social tensions across the nation, but pledged to listen and act. The tenor of the conversation was encouraging and unifying, as leaders from various firms openly discussed what Danaher CEO, Ranier Blair, aptly labeled “difficult truths.” By focusing on humility, empathy and desire to be change makers, speakers challenged the entire medtech industry to become a positive example for other sectors, through education and action.

MD&DI shares breaking insights in this article, including a point we found striking: what’s behind the lack of diversity in clinical research data? Indeed, looking for opportunities to improve in unexpected places can help all of us rally to go forward for good.
