Austin Blockchain Collective’s Executive Director and Symposium Producer to Present Scene Setting Thoughts on Healthcare as a Data Business
Following the morning Symposium Welcome by Pete Harris, Executive Director, Austin Blockchain Collective and Anjum Khurshid, Director of Data Integration, Department of Population Health, Dell Medical School at the University of Texas, Mr. Harris will deliver scene setting thought leadership titled “What Healthcare Can Learn from Wall Street.”
