Event Description

Princeton Entrepreneurship Council (PEC) and PAA of Nashville & Middle TN are pleased to invite you to attend the next TigerTalks Digital event and the first to feature Nashville alumni. The evening's topic is "Impacts of COVID-19 on the Future of Healthcare Delivery" and will feature an outstanding panel of Princeton founders and investors. Afterwards, plan to join further conversations in several breakout and networking rooms.

Panel Discussion

The slate of panelists will include The Hon. William H. Frist '74 MD, Partner, Cressey & Company and Founder, NashvilleHealth; Jennifer Meko '87, MD, MBA, CPE, Senior Medical Director - Health Plan, Martin's Point Health Care; Cole Barfield '03, MD, MBA, Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder, Wellview Health; David Thorpe '09, CEO, Upperline Health; and Matthew Prisco '09, Founder and CEO, Betafits.

This panel will represent a variety of vantage points into the future of healthcare delivery from among startup founder, investor, clinical, and consumer/payer perspectives. The discussion will center around exciting opportunities in this space and evaluate the notion that innovation requires collaboration across these domains. Specifically, we will examine tech-enabled shifts in the industry and explore what it takes for new approaches to be viable within the evolving framework of healthcare in the United States.

Networking Breakout Sessions

Please join us following the panel discussion for continued conversations with either investors, founders, or healthcare practitioners. Pick one breakout room for dialog and Q&A, or transition from one to another.

The breakout rooms will focus on conversations and issues raised during the panel discussion around investment trends and opportunities, startup challenges and dynamics in a Covid-19 environment, and how clinicians and practitioners are re-imagining tech-enabled healthcare delivery.

Each breakout session will have individual Zoom links so that you can join the conversation(s) of your choice.
