With 200 attendees expected, speakers from around the US — 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,” says Emily Lyter, PT, DPT, administrative director of Good Shepherd Learns, Creates and Research at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation.

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation and Good Shepherd Penn Partners (GSPP) employees can attend for free. CEU opportunities are also available for occupational therapists who attend the event.
