"Our keynote speakers directly impact the policies that regulate, reimburse, and allow us to export our technologies, as well as those that advocate the benefits of these life changing innovative medical technologies and devices. We look forward to hearing their remarks, showing them our innovations, and participating in a constructive and engaging dialogue."

AdvaMed 2010: The MedTech Conference will open on Monday, October 18 with a series of Executive Workshops.  Workshop topics range from bringing medical devices to the U.S. market to harmonization and an entrepreneurship bootcamp. AdvaMed 2010 encompasses 39 educational panels, 62 innovative company presentations, more than 70 exhibiting companies, and a series of sector and industry networking events.

The first AdvaMed 2010 keynote address will take place on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The 7:30 am keynote will feature Dr. Donald Berwick, Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).  Dr. Berwick has an extensive background in health policy and medicine.  A key task for Berwick, as CMS Administrator, will be implementing the newly passed healthcare reform law known as the Affordable Care Act. Tuesday afternoon Katie Couric, the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, will address conference attendees and patient advocacy groups at 12:15 pm.
