    Wonderful to see the meeting of entrepreneurs, coders, EHR developers, public health specialists, and StartUps! We are essentially crowd-sourcing the changes we would like to see in healthcare...one meetup at a time.

    I was hoping to go, but I'm not sure if there are two tickets available or not.

      It looks like you've added yourself to the waitlist on Eventbrite, correct? I'm releasing tickets to people on the waitlist. Once I've released them, you should be able to claim a ticket. Let me know if you run into any issues.

    We're looking forward to it too! I just want to make sure everyone here is aware that tickets must be reserved through Eventbrite. Seating is limited, so a ticket is the only way to ensure that you have a seat. As of this morning, we only have about 20 out of 100 tickets left.

      Hi Ed, Glad you got a ticket. We'll probably get through all hundred today. We'll talk to the people at NOBIC to see if we might be able to accomodate a little more than 100. There are limits on how many people the space can accomodate, which is why we are having people reserve a seat via Eventbrite.
