‘Leading Disruption: A Healthcare Innovation Summit’ to Bring Innovators from Around U.S.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — Good Shepherd Rehabilitation is hosting a one-day conference designed to inspire an innovation mindset with thought-provoking presentations, interactive workshops and networking.

Scheduled for April 22 at Wind Creek Bethlehem’s brand-new conference center, this summit will unite a diverse community of healthcare professionals, business leaders, healthcare administrators, industry experts, academics and students — all motivated by a passion to challenge the status quo.

With 200 attendees expected, speakers from around the U.S. — as well as locally from Lehigh University and Ben Franklin Technology Partners of NE PA — will share expertise and insight into topics, such as artificial intelligence (AI), re-thinking the patient experience, launching out of the clinic and into market and lessons from 40 years of new venture creation.

“As a leader in providing innovative solutions for patients, practitioners and people living with disabilities, Good Shepherd Rehabilitation is uniquely positioned to host and present the Leading Disruption innovation summit,” said Emily Lyter, PT, DPT, administrative director of Good Shepherd Learns, Creates and Research at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation.
