Closing Keynote Speaker ai AIHceExp 2017 Dr. John J. Medina
May 12, 2017

The Brains Behind Leadership

Wednesday, June 7
2:15 - 3:15 PM
Our closing keynote speaker has a lifelong fascination with how the mind reacts to and organizes information, so we’re sure he and Jennings will have a lot to discuss between their keynotes at the AIHce conference. Dr. John J. Medina is a developmental molecular biologist focused on the genes involved in human brain development and the genetics of psychiatric disorders. He has spent most of his professional life as a private research consultant, working primarily in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries on research related to mental health.

The only thing that rivals Medina’s genius is his energy. When he speaks, the room is filled with passion and enthusiasm, leaving his audience riveted, reeling, and also quite refreshed. The solutions to seemingly complicated questions become easy to discern after experiencing his presentations. Medina’s been named Outstanding Faculty of the Year at the College of Engineering at the University of Washington; the Merrill Dow/Continuing Medical Education National Teacher of the Year; and, twice, the Bioengineering Student Association Teacher of the Year.
Medina will be signing copies of his latest book at the AIHA booth (#1211) on Wednesday, June 7 from 12:30 to 1 PM.
