WHEN:           Tuesday, April 19, 2016, 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. EDT

WHERE:         Continuum Corporate Headquarters, 99 High Street, 31st Floor, Boston

Heather Lavoie is talking about her own journey into the technology field, major influencers and the work that Geneia is doing in the healthcare field, particularly in wearable computing. Heather’s perspectives on breaking into a male-dominated industry and rising to the ranks of upper management to the extent that she often has been “the only one in heels” will inspire. She began her career in computer programming and over nearly 30 years has led everything from start-ups, health plan and provider organizations, to initiatives that improve healthcare use and delivery.
