Corporate Event Moderator
Dr. Snyderman has years of expertise as a veteran network medical journalist and practicing physician,
combined with corporate experience at Johnson & Johnson and General Electric’s Healthymagination. Her 30 years of working in these arenas gives her a skill set that helps guide panel discussions to bring information of value to the audience while managing time and disparate voices.
Technology continues to disrupt the healthcare markets at an amazing pace and we are just on the cusp of the changes to come. From implantable nanochips to the democratization of DNA and the true meaning of Big Data, the markets, businesses and ultimately the consumers will need to adapt.
Women’s Health Care
Women continue to be the primary consumers of healthcare for themselves and their families, sometimes taking care of so many people that their own needs are put on the back burner. Advances in health care (with new genomic sequencing for breast cancer) have improved women’s health and yet too many of us
die needlessly from heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. We need to bridge the gap.
The Future of Medicine
Rarely has a topic in medicine been so grim and exciting at the same time. While we are battling noncommunicable diseases like diabetes, hypertension and heart disease that are truly preventable, we are
looking at an explosion of philanthropic dollars zeroing in on the human genome, artificial intelligence and
nanotechnology. Where do they meet and what do these breakthroughs mean for the average person? Is anyone really talking to each other?
This may be the fastest growing demographic of our population for which most of us are woefully
unprepared. The importance of having the big and tough conversations with aging parents while they are
still healthy is not always easy. Yet those folks who have living wills, have spoken about finances and have
appointed an adult child as a point person usually do better during times of crises. The fact that the average American only has $20,000 in savings complicates Eldercare and the inherent stresses on the caregiver are subjects that every family should understand.
“Nancy Snyderman…is under priced for the value she brought yesterday. The spouses replied ‘she was the best speaker we ever had,’ ‘it was like she knew us’ and ‘Ms. Snyderman is the most genuinely sincere person on the planet.’ If I booked her now to give the spouse speech every year for the next ten years, they’d love it.”
“She was fantastic.She was so sweet and so natural and very warm to everyone who came up to speak with her. Her talk on Haiti was eloquent and moving. She also took questions at the end about women’s health care, health reform, etc. and was fabulous. She is really smart and honest and gave thoughtful and new answers to questions that you might expect canned answers to. She expressed herself beautifully. We couldn’t be happier.”
