Artificial Intelligence & Technology in Healthcare

At the Health Professions Network’s Fall Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we’ll be exploring the ways in which technology is changing healthcare, for patients and professionals alike. We’ll have expert sessions taking a deeper look at the impact of technology in healthcare from a number of angles—the persistent cloud of ‘big data,’ artificial intelligence, telemedicine, and more, with a lens on how this rapid change might impact professions.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

We’re excited to be hosted by sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida! The Greater Fort Lauderdale area of Broward County is a popular tourist destination that also boasts a LEED-certified convention center with 600,000 square feet of space facing the intracoastal waterway, offering panoramic water views through a soaring glass wall. The convention center is only a three-mile drive from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

A highly anticipated $750 million convention center expansion project plans to add even more meeting space and create a connected convention center district complete with a waterfront plaza.

Plus, just minutes from the Fort Lauderdale beach is the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District downtown, home to a myriad cultural attractions, shops, parks and restaurants. We hope to see you there!
