Medical Salon by Hacking Health Berlin
A medical salon is an interactive and engaging event where the participants are also the speakers. That means everybody is free to give a (spontaneous) talk about whatever topic they are interested in, as long as it is healthcare related and not a company pitch. Each talk will be followed by a round of questions and discussions. So if you are keen about tissue engineering, the future of medicine, or if you want to share your secret medicine against hiccups you are very welcome to join.
