Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
American Medical Informatics Association - AMIA 2015 Annual Symposium
The Symposium is the leading scientific meeting for biomedical and health informatics research and practice. Biomedical and health informatics is the scientific discipline that seeks to develop and use information to improve health care, to assist biomedical research across the continuum from molecules to populations, and to empower practitioners and the public in their quest for better health for all.
The Symposium is an opportunity to learn about the latest trends in informatics, network with colleagues old and new, develop collaborations, and interact with leaders in the field. The Symposium includes full-length papers, abstracts, poster sessions, panel discussions, cutting-edge policy presentations, keynotes, tutorials, system demonstrations, and pre-Symposium workshops. The exhibit hall will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about the latest products and services in health information and information technology.
AMIA’s Annual Symposium serves many communities: translational scientists, clinicians, computer scientists, nurse informaticians, clinical researchers, public health officials, and those who specialize in telemedicine and consumer health informatics.
