What is Ignite TAO: Health?

Ignite TAO: Health is a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by local people who have a burning idea and the guts to get onstage and share their personal and professional passions. Quick, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, and global – Ignite is all of these and more.

Ignite TAO: Health will focus on topics around wellness, pharmaceuticals, software, medical devices, healthcare and more. What new products, services or research can really take healthcare to the next level? What new ideas could make the world of healthcare better – for patients, for doctors, or for everyone? Speakers are from the local Portland community with representatives across many verticals – we want to hear from you!
