Welcome HCx3DP Synergist!
(...present or prospective...)
Our next Meetup Event is Tuesday, 3 February! This is the latest update of our agenda for that coming evening (as of Super Bowl Sunday, 1 February):
We’re delighted to enjoy the generous hosting of ThoughtWorks (http://www.thoughtworks.com/) for our 3 February Meetup.
TWorks is the innovative software development house---with offices in 12 countries, a client base in the Fortune 100 and a corporate “Social Impact Program.” The firm’s New York offices are at 99 Madison Avenue, 15th Floor (at the corner of East 29th Street, a few blocks southeast of Penn Station). Our event there will abide by our regular 6:30 to 8:30 PM event hours.
As promised, we’ve continued to develop our February 3rd “Expert” lineup. Via your attendance, here are the Expert Presenters you will enjoy:
Digital-Laser Fab’ing for Med Devices and BioTech---Sarah Boisvert: Co-Founder and Chief 3D Printing Officer of Potomac Photonics (http://www.potomac-laser.com/services/core/3d-printing/), a digital-laser fabrication service with particular emphasis in the Medical Device and BioTech industries. She is also the Founder of Fab Lab Hub (with 62K+ Twitter followers!), which supports Fab Labs on the East Coast of the U.S. (Confirmed.)
3DP Retail’s Role in DIY HC---Sylvain Preumont: Founder & Director of iMakr (http://www.imakr.com/us/) of London and New York City. His innovative retail operations foreshadow how this rapidly developing 3DP segment of DIY/DIT end-users, makers, consumers and prosumers are likely to support, lead and invent 3D Printing’s future. We foresee a retail-driven marketplace for DIY Healthcare participants and players---especially with potential strategic alliances with new HC communities like Maker Nurses. (Confirmed.)
3DP Equipment & Process Showcase---Arthur Young-Spivey: Digital Fabrication Specialist at NRI (http://www.nrinet.com/), a digital-offerings service bureau---supporting the enterprise and professionals---from nine offices in the Northeast Corridor and major cities around the U.S. NRI has now enhanced its integrated technology, data and document management services---delivered on-site or from its production centers---with professional 3DP capabilities. On 3 Feb---because of the popularity of orientations---NRI is helping us to continue showcasing still largely unfamiliar 3DP equipment and functionality for the over-view education of our Meetup audiences. (Confirmed.)
We’re working hard to keep improving on our Meetup successes. We'll evolve our agendas as we build value for our audiences---YOU! Our February 3 Meetup will present our regular event features with on-going upgrades. Our 3 February Agenda now includes:
1. Orientation, Announcements, Evening's Doings [Land Grant, 3DP Media; 5 minutes];

Our "HCx3DP New York" Meetup---HCx3DP stands for "Healthcare Multiplied by 3D Printing"---is designed to help grow a community of Metro NYC "HCx3DP Synergists." Together, we will strive to discover, learn, exchange and advance personal, commercial and common-good knowledge about the new, important and valuable at the exciting and empowering intersection of HC & 3DP in our New York City.
