Each November, we hold the largest annual undergraduate healthcare conference of the nation. WUHConference includes 2 famous keynote speakers, 4 speaker panels, a networking luncheon, sponsored case competition, resume workshop, and dessert reception. Our past keynotes have included Chairman/CEO of Cardinal Health George S. Barrett, Next-Gen sequencing inventor Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, Merck’s ex-CEO Roy Vagelos, Siemens Medical Solutions USA President David Pacitti, Regeneron CSO Dr. George Yancopoulos, and CDCN Founder Dr. David Fajgenbaum, among other top executives and professionals. Students have been able to interact with leaders in the field, engage in smaller networking experiences, and even land internships. More information can be found at www.wuhconference.org.
Member Tasks: Committee members are involved in reaching out to potential speakers, organizing the case competition/professional workshops, contacting other collegiate healthcare clubs, ordering merchandise/supplies, marketing, and logistical event-planning. Members decide the conference theme and panel topics. Members will forge a wide network of connections with industry professionals and gain invaluable event-planning skills.
