IT’S BACK TO THE FUTURES OF HEALTHCARE

FUTURES Exhibit

Mimi recently participated in the “Living Longer Festival: Health + Wellness 2050,” held at the Smithsonian Arts & Industries Building on the National Mall. Here, Mimi shares a brief photo journal, with captions, of her incredible experience.

MedWand’s Co-Founders, Bob Rose, CEO, and Samir Qamar, MD, CMO, were frequently seen on-hand answering questions from the 12,000 visitors who toured the Exhibit on “Solstice Saturday,” when several of the Smithsonian museums, including AIB, stayed open late – some till midnight.
