New York, NY


  • Gary J. Kurtzman, MD, Managing Director, Healthcare, Safeguard Scientifics

NYC Health Business Leaders will kick off the new year with a look at healthcare investment trends. During 2014, we saw more dollars flow into health technology than ever before and witnessed a frenzy of M&A activity. Think Merck-Cubist, Actavis-Allergan, Medtronic-Covidien to name a few. Looking ahead, the experts all have different opinions on where consolidations will happen and venture, private equity, and public markets are headed. Fresh off JP Morgan’s Healthcare conference, our experts (to be announced in early January) will provide insight into the sectors that will generate the most activity in 2015.

The panel session entitled, "Lean In or Pull Back: Where Will the Money Flow in 2015?", will feature the following speakers:

  • LESLIE HENSHAW — Partner, Deerfield Management
  • GARY J. KURTZMAN, MD — Managing Director, Healthcare, Safeguard Scientifics (NYSE:SFE)
  • HUGH MA — Founder and Managing Partner, Cien Ventures
  • JON PUZ — Vice President, Shields Pharmacy; President, Harvard Business School Healthcare Alumni Association
  • JUSTIN SILVER — Executive Vice President, Corporate Development, Ability Network (MODERATOR)
  • LEE WRUBEL, MD — General Partner, Foundation Medical Partners
