Bright Lights Health Innovation Salon Series

Bright Lights: Health Innovation Salons put Arizona Health Innovators in the spotlight in an intimate setting where guests get a front row seat and learn what is takes to create life changing and life saving health innovations. 

Our December 9, 2022 event features a conversation with Elsa Chi Abruzzo, president & CEO of Anuncia Medical.  Named a 2022 Fast Lane Company, Anuncia is creating new solutions for children and adults living with Hydrocephalus.

Bright Light sessions are kept small by design so that health innovation champions and innovators can have meaningful conversations. Contact AZAdvances to request an invitation.

In 2023, Voice of the Patient will be held on September 28th.
