Ignite Health V2: Call for Presentations

Ignite 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 passions. Presentations are quick, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global and bursting with innovation. The 2014 Ignite Health will be held October 15, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. in the OHSU Collaborative Life Sciences building.

Ignite Health can include topics like wellness, pharmaceuticals, software, medical devices, healthcare reform, reimbursement, and personal medicine. This event draws a diverse crowd of practitioners, researchers, administrators, entrepreneurs, consultants and healthcare business professionals.

Ignite Health proposals should include a brief written synopsis of your presentation and a brief bio about yourself. Show and tell something cool you’ve invented or found – no sales pitches please!

HOW TO APPLY – Deadline Sept. 10, 2014
Proposals should be submitted online by Sept. 10. Once submitted, your proposal will be reviewed by the Ignite team. Please include your contact information in case the team has questions about your proposal. All presenters will be notified by Sept. 25.

  1. These Ignite events are quite amazing. I can’t speak for the Ignite Health one in particular, but the Ignite Portland event last fall was very informative and entertaining.

    I’m definitely interested in checking this out.

  2. Great to hear! I haven’t been to one yet, but am excited to attend this year.

  3. This sounds really exciting – a healthcare-focused Moth/RadioLab/TED mashup. Putting it on my calendar!
