Don't Miss Dollens

Regular readers of IN VIVO the magazine may recall a particularly insightful question-and-answer piece with Ron Dollens, the retired president and CEO of Guidant Corp., in our January issue.

Colleague David Cassak led Dollens a bit down memory lane and drew very telling details of the start—and the end—of Guidant. Well, don’t take our word for it. You can get a free copy of the article here.

Now you’ve got an opportunity to hear Dollens in person this week at our upcoming In3 East conference in Boston. He’ll be the keynote speaker on Thursday morning leading off two days of genuine information and insights on the medical device industry. Check out the second day panel.

Just prior to the publishing of the article, Dollens was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at last year’s Phoenix Medical Device CEO meeting, which is sponsored by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Versant Ventures and IN VIVO.

And if you do make it to the In3 conference this week please say hello. Baseball fans seeking spirited discussion in between presentations will find healthy representation of the four American League playoff teams. We shipped the Phillies fan to London.
