The conference will include keynote speaker Dr. Eric Tomlinson, chief information officer of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and president of Wake Forest Innovation Quarter, along with Jeff Richard Myers, assistant professor, Wake Technical Community College. An international panel and breakout sessions will offer insights into global involvement and opportunities.
