Scheduled Event

Ask Me Anything (AMA) format free webinar inviting 3DHEALS2020 speakers to have a direct and candid conversation

About this Event:

There are numerous parallel conversations throughout the healthcare 3D Printing sector lately on how the industry can collectively help with the current crisis. The intrinsic advantages of 3D printing solve the supply chain crisis the healthcare sector is experiencing by allowing decentralized manufacturing processes, design freedom, and lack of inventory requirement. That said, what design should we use? Who are the qualified manufacturers? What does the healthcare system really need? What 3D printing can or cannot do? Are we helping?

We welcome you to join this direct and candid conversation with us in this Free webinar. The first half of the webinar is a conversation among invited 3DHEALS2020 speakers. The second half is open to public Q&A, moderated by 3DHEALS.
