Thank you
Dear GAEF attendees!

Thank you for joining us at last week's German American Economic Forum: Healthcare Innovation at Northeastern University #GAEF2019!

We were extremely pleased that so many panelists accepted our invitation to join the Forum and graciously shared their time and perspectives. But we also thank you, our attendees, that you spent the morning with us listening to and discussing the Healthcare Innovation topics of our time. We received feedback from many of you, but we would like to hear more: Please fill out our quick, five-question post-event survey -- you will find the link below. As you know, we are planning the Forum to become an annual event, and gladly take your suggestions and comments into consideration for next year.

Many of you have also asked for Jan Hartmann's Keynote Presentation who kindly made it available. You can view it here. We have also compiled a few photographic impressions from Friday for you to look back to (thank you to MilliporeSigma for providing these to us) and included our folder materials for future reference as well.

Lastly, take a look at our upcoming events and, if you are not a member, consider joining the GABC or signing up for our mailing list. Now is great time to become part of our active and growing network organization! We have included membership information at the end of this message. We look forward to hearing from you.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen | Kind regards
