Date:10/2/2007

Plenary Speaker Hall of Fame Coach Jim Calhoun

Credits Early Diagnosis with Saving his Life

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Day two of AdvaMed 2007: The MedTech Conference will highlight how everyday patients are heroes and benefit from advancements in medical technology as well as speakers on the diversity and strength of the economic impact of the medical technology sector. The conference runs Oct. 1 through Oct. 3.

Co-writing "A PASSION TO LEAD: Seven Leadership Secrets for Success in Business, Sports, and Life" is the latest endeavor by Hall of Fame Coach and prostate cancer survivor, Jim Calhoun. Calhoun, one of the most successful coaches ever in college basketball history with two national championships at the University of Connecticut, credits early diagnosis and a successful surgery with his speedy recovery from prostate cancer. During his plenary remarks, Calhoun will address a series of life goals he set for himself as a coach, teacher, and family man, as well as his secrets for success on and off the court. He will provide anecdotes from his life and career including his successful battle against prostate cancer and his support for cardiovascular research.

"Coach Calhoun is not just a great basketball coach and strategist; he is an inspiration, role model and exceptional leader. He is helping to save lives by encouraging regular cancer screenings," said Stephen J. Ubl, president and CEO of AdvaMed.

U.S. Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.) also will speak before AdvaMed 2007 participants.

U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez will speak at 5:15 p.m. Following the Secretary's comments, members of the Global Harmonization Task Force and the AdvaMed 2007 conference will participate in a joint gala reception in which Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is an invited honoree.
