Meet the company whose founder invented the defibrillator. During an emergency, a life depends on advanced, high-quality medical technology. Physiocontrol produces this technology. It specializes in developing, manufacturing, and selling emergency medical response equipment including defibrillators, chest compressors, and analysis tools for resuscitation data. Our meeting on September 30th at 5:30 p.m. will be held in the Bank of America Executive Education Center (EXED) 310.
Today, BLHC made the trip to EvergreenHealth Hospital in Kirkland, where we had the opportunity to speak with five healthcare professionals! We want to give special thanks to these incredible individuals for taking the time to meet with us the Friday before Memorial Day weekend:
- Bob Malte, CEO (Chief Executive Officer)
- Neil Johnson, COO (Chief Operating Officer)
- Chrissy Yamada, CFO (Chief Finance Officer)
- Jeff Tomlin, CMO (Chief Medical Officer)
- Laurene Burton, Governance
It has been a complete honor to learn from you and we will carry that knowledge with us as we find our own paths to the future.
We are selecting officers for the upcoming school year! Thank you to everyone who applied we are excited to announce the new executive board members.
Last Wednesday we had the pleasure of hearing from Matt Scholz, CEO of the biotech startup, Immusoft. He is pursuing a revolutionary science that will turn a person’s B-Cells into, “drug factories.” Thank you to all of you who came to the meeting. Check out the link to Immusoft’s website below if you want to learn more about the company. There is also a lot of very interesting media coverage of their work.
Thank you to everyone that signed up for the field trip today! This is our first off campus event so we’re all very excited. We will meet in the Paccar Commons at 3:00pm today before leaving. The tour is from 4:00-5:00pm so we are estimating we will be back at UW around 5:30pm.
